Family History

It's all about family. The LDS Church believes that genealogy is the best way to connect to your ancestors and uses the word Family History rather than Genealogy. Family History is such an important belief that FamilySearch.org was created and is a nonprofit family history organization dedicated to connecting families across generations.

We believe that Family History will bring joy and meaning to life.
