I thought I would tell you about a new website (for me) Family History Sharing Ideas. I learned about this website in my recent Executive Board Meeting of the Utah Valley PAF User Group (UVPAFUG - http://www.uvpafug.org
). The website address for Family History Sharing Ideas is http://www.snapwood.com/familyhistory/
. This site is a great resource for LDS members interested in Family History and Temple Work.
You could use this site if you are a family history consultant, preparing for a family history orientated talk, or just wanting to learn more about doing temple work. This is not an official LDS Church website - "Just Family History friends sharing ideas to help each other in furthering this great work!"
