What is The Family History Guide?

James Tanner

Summary

What I find almost every time I give genealogical presentations is that many people are "interested" in genealogy but either have no idea how to get started or do not know how to progress past the "casual interest" stage. I often talk to people who pull out a stack of paper and say something to the effect of what should I do now? The answer to both these questions and many others is simple: The Family History Guide.

How effective is The Family History Guide?  Well, it has been used now for years to teach the missionaries at the Brigham Young University Family History Library and some of the missionaries at the Salt Lake City, Utah, Family History Library. It is used now by thousands of people around the world to advance family history and genealogy in a major way. It is an official training partner of FamilySearch.org

After trying to teach many people about family history and trying to figure out how to move them forward on their own, I was delighted to learn of The Family History Guide when it was launched at the BYU Family History Conference a few years ago. Instead of searching here there and everywhere for instruction, now it is all right there for them to take away after one visit to the FamilySearch Library. The Family History Guide creates a place where people can become proficient, independent learners anywhere they go. The website @thefhguide.com is mobile friendly and you can keep track of everything with the online tracker. it is simply the best learning system out there!

There is not an easier way to get started in family history. This "tool", The Family History Guide, is for newbies and everyone right up to seasoned genealogists. I call it the "Swiss Army Knife" for family history that anyone doing family history needs.

Thanks, James! This is an excellent overview article of The Family History Guide - clear and easy to follow (just like The Family History Guide itself!)
