The BYU-Idaho Family History Center had have the opportunity to help students to get stated with their family history and provided special group sections to either teach them how to do indexing, start their family history, work in family tree, how to make further research…
Our goal is help students to develop the desire of doing family history. Elder Scott said in one of his talks, “It all begins with love and a sincere desire to help those on the other veil that can’t help themselves.” We invite every to come to family history and we will get you started and this great work. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you any question.

We have had the opportunity of helping from 50-150 ward members from the YSA and married wards each Sunday this past semester with their family history and Indexing.
This service will continue during the Winter 2013 Semester but with a little difference; the location has changed from the McKay Library basement computer lab to the south side of the Manwaring Crossroads cafeteria. As this area has no computers the students will need to bring their personal laptops and a flash drive each time they come.
We are excited to have a large, open, and accessible area in which to help the students at BYU-Idaho.
Our goal is to help each of the students begin their personal family history by learning to use FamilySearch Family Tree and RootsMagic with the goal of receiving temple ordinances for one of their own ancestors. In October general conference Elder Scott called temple and family history work ”one work divided into two parts… Any work you do in the temple is time well spent, but receiving ordinances vicariously for one of your own ancestors will make the time in the temple more sacred and even greater blessings will be received."
We can also help the ward members provide more names for research through learning and doing Indexing.
If you have any questions please contact us. On week days the Family History Center will continue to be open on the second floor of the east will of the McKay Library.
