Summary — What Did I Do?

We're Having Fun

Here's How We Did It

Pedigree Chart OViewHere’s a brief Summary of the 5 Basic Steps we’ve just completed.

Filled in a Pedigree Chart  ————>>>

Step 1.  Registered on FamilySearch
   — requires only membership # and birthdate

Step 2.  Organized My Family History Stuff
   a)  Gathered My family history stuff together into one place
   b)  Set up MY file folders
    — one folder for each couple on your pedigree chart
   c)  Sorted MY gathered stuff into the right file folders
   d)  Entered MY family information into a computer
    — either into FamilySearch only or also use a software program, i.e. Roots Magic
   e)  Set up MY Family History Binder

Step 3.  Became Familiar with Useful Links and Setup Bookmarks (Favorites)
Step 4.  Researched MY Family
   a)  Began with myself, my immediate family, and other relatives
   b)  Then began to search the Internet using a handy Checklist
   c)  Then started my search for original records

Step 5.  Finally I Took Those Names To The Temple
   Using the FamilyTree website:
   a)  Start connecting your family
   b)  Check to see who needs temple ordinances
   c)  Select which ancestors to submit for temple work
   d)  Print a Family Ordinance Request*
   e)  Smile… Go to the temple and perform the ordinances

*if you don’t want to do the work yourself, just click a button and the Temple will handle the ordinances (and you’re done).

And, remember, if you get stuck anywhere along the way, we’ve got fabulous Family History Consultants in the Stake Family History Center and in each ward to help with these challenges.
