Is the Operations Guide for Family History Centers 2015 the latest manuel? Is there any changes added to it? If so where do I find them? Thank you.
Hi gingerhawncooper, Here is a link to
Updated Family History Center Operations Guide Now Available Online.
Hope it is what you have been looking for. And what you have been looking for.
That is 2013 there is a 2015. I am making sure it is the latest one.
If you look at the article it says : The guide will be distributed online through the Family History Callings page on LDS.org. Click "Family History Center Director" and you will find it listed under "Core Training for Your Calling:"
I can not find a newer one, sorry.
I am afraid it is no longer there. Please could anyone tell me where the link is to gain a very valuable core training.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
[ Plus, I have been, a "Staff Member", of "Family History Centres", of the Church, for many of Years ... ]
Short Answer: 'Yes', there has yet, been NO 'Official' Update, such is STILL a long running, 'Work in Progress'.
Whether it be, a "Version" from, 2013; 2014; 2015; or, whatever, it matters little ... work with what you have ...
I am lucky, I am from "Downunder" (Australia).
We did have an OLD Version for "Downunder" (Australia), which I already had, just not on that list.
Can I humbly suggest, that UNTIL the "Guidelines" are actually "Updated" (which has been 'ongoing' for Years), that one just uses BOTH,
(1) the "US and Canada" (English); and,
(2) the "Europe" = English (English),
simply as a guide; as, a 'work around'.
That, is what I have been doing, with ours from "Downunder" (Australia); and, that of "US and Canada" (English); plus, that of "Europe" = English (English) - making the most of what I have, 'on-hand'.
We can only do, what we can ...
I know that this certainly does not help/assist; but, I hope that this gives you some, insight; and, perspective.
Thank u all for ur answers
