Do students learn history better through the eyes of their own ancestors? I think so! When I was in 8th grade, our school held a cultural fair. It was one of the most memorable school projects I did. Not only was my teacher that year one of my favorite people ever, but she had a […]

At RootsTech in February, a reader pointed us to a new app for finding family names for the temple. It’s called “Take A Name” by Kinpoint. I tried it out, and it’s pretty great! Within about 15 minutes, the app scanned my tree and found 70 names and 174 ordinances. It also told me how […]
I recently helped with a neighboring stake’s Family Discovery Day. I was delighted to be contacted about it. We came up with family history ideas to keep the children busy for 3 hours while their parents attended the classes. I was just one of the people who helped, and each person who did had unique […]

What’s even better is that this project requires no sewing. All you need is felt, family pictures, glue, […]
