The most important thing that you can do as a leader is to experience the blessings of family history and temple service for yourself. Several new tools have been created to make this as easy as possible for anyone to find their ancestors that are in need of temple ordinances. Get started by visiting FamilySearch.org/Find-Take-Teach and using the appropriate resource card below.
Find Your Family Names
A First Time Guide
This is a great place to start if you have never done family history work before.
Discover Relatives On A Full Tree
This is a great place to start if you already have some familiarity with family history work.
Another great way for leaders and members to get started is to assign someone to host a family discovery day. These discovery events are filled with activities designed to help families find their ancestors and take them to the temple.
