Note: All firesides are held on the first Sunday of each month
November kicks off the holiday season. Many families spend time together therefore, we thought it would great to focus on getting started or updating your family history. Our speaker will help us get started and show many ways to help move the work along. You do not want to miss this meeting! Bring a pen and paper because you will want to take notes.

He also concurrently teaches at stake, youth and family history conferences, multi-stake family history fairs and even at individual family home evenings. He also uses the internet to teach to locations as far away as Hawaii, Arizona, California and Missouri.
