“Our Father’s plan is about families, symbolized by a great tree. In order for a tree to live and grow, it needs both roots and branches. We likewise need to be connected both to our roots—our parents, grandparents, and other ancestors—and to our branches—our children, grandchildren, and other descendants.”  Elder Quentin L. Cook, RootsTech 2015

Hi. I love working on my family history. I also love helping people learn how to use FamilySearch, Family Tree and Ancestry.com to discover, explore and perfect their own family history. I have been involved with family history for many years and teach weekly classes on a variety of family history topics.

I started this blog to share the videos I’ve created. The topics that I cover are straight from the weekly classes that I teach. There is no real order to the videos. I tend to post video topics that fit what I am working on, what I’m teaching that week or what questions I am helping others with.

To find topics you are interested in, you can go to the Blog page and scroll down through the posts, or you can select a category from the menu at the top of the page, or you can use the Search box to find videos by topic.  I would recommend viewing the videos in full screen mode in HD, or you can view the videos on YouTube directly.
