Teaching family history
Richard Bruce Wheeler said: the information is presented in a useless form. IE most out of date (year old) and material is given in random format. nothing given to "teach" a person how to use current version of familysearch. as Sunday School teachers we are left to create our own presentations for the year. this year we will start a new class starting with the basics and then moving on to the specifics. we follow up with "one-on-one" help as needed. then we help get the ordinance work completed by temple attendance and encouraging others to take their "finds" to the temple. the weekly lessons developed are derived from personal experiences including the discovery of stories about our ancestors. class members share their successes from trips to cemeteries and ancestral sites along with what they find on FamilySearch. partner sites are introduced. the importance of having off-line data base such as Legacy to keep track of trusted information.
