New Familysearch

Happy 2: Seed takes Root: "Our family history center looked like a storage closet with the computer buried beneath the pile. Now everything is nice and clean. The director said they are so full on Sunday with people coming that the stake president said he will probably have to move the center to two larger rooms just to accommodate the members. Now people are lining up to visit the center. This little center has gone from a junk closet to an overflowing work space for family history. The seed was planted and it took root. We get so excited to see that the work of the Lord goes forward."

I'm so grateful that I can serve as a World Wide Support Missionary with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint's Family History Department. This is the best mission. It's at home and part-time and I work with wonderful people!! It's been six months now and I have learned so much already. Of course I still have much to learn, but I'm gaining more confidence all the time! We support the Family History products that the LDS church produces. This includes Personal Ancestral File, Family Search Internet, New FamilySearch. We also give some support to Family History Centers with some the programs they use to help patrons.

This truly is a worldwide calling. I have received e-mails or phone calls from the following countries, New Zealand, Australia, Wales, England, Netherlands, Sweden and Germany. My favorite patrons are the wonderful octogenarians who need help to use New FamilySearch as they reach out to their ancestors. I'm amazed at how well they are able to use a computer! It is just a wonderful feeling to help someone with a challenge. Sometimes, I just want to shout for joy!

New FamilySearch - Getting Started « Temple Bell Texas: "Once you have looked through all the tabs in the Pedigree with Details view, start navigating up and down the generations. Notice that each shaded box has an icon in the upper right-hand corner. This indicates whether there is Temple work to be done, Temple work in progress or Temple work completed for the husband and wife of that family. Click on the name of your grandfather. Notice that your position in the Pedigree Chart doesn’t change but the details at the bottom of the page are for your grandfather. You will see a small grey triangle at the right end of each field. I will show you how to use that in just a minute. . . . . "
