FamilySearch Lessons Now Online

The LDS Church’s Family History Library has been providing classes to patrons for many years. In the past, a patron would have to travel to the Library to take advantage of these classes, but no longer. The Library will begin testing different methods of exporting these classes to patrons who reside outside of the Salt Lake City area. The first method to be tested is a set of five lessons in a classroom setting in a video format. These lessons are now available on and cover the basics of getting started with family history research in England. The five lessons are called

Lesson 1: Research Overview
Lesson 2: Census Records
Lesson 3: Civil Registration
Lesson 4: Church Records
Lesson 5: Find Your Ancestors

We invite you to visit, view these lessons, and then give us your feedback by using the feedback link there on the online classes’ page.
