Find, Take, Teach: Understanding Your Calling

The Purpose of Family History Centers

The purpose of family history centers is to help Church members fulfill their divinely appointed responsibility to discover their families, take their ancestors' names to the temple, and teach others to do the same.

Find, Take, Teach

As a family history center director, you play an important role as the Lord hastens the work of salvation by following these three simple steps:


Provide personal assistance to help others FIND family names using, the My Family: Stories That Bring Us Together booklet, and other resources.


Help Church members TAKE names to the temple or share them with others who will take them to the temple.


Help people learn how to TEACH their family and others to successfully find names and take them to the temple.
