FamilySearch is the official family tree of humankind, holding the world's largest library of genealogical records with over 3.5 billion ancestor names and 12 billion records. LegacyStories is proud to be the first web application to attain Tree Connect certification with FamilySearch. This special certification allows LegacyStories members to link their writings, photos and audio recordings to ancestors in the FamilySearch Family Tree.
Tree Connect Course
The four-part course below is designed to teach the main storytelling elements of the LegacyStories website and how to link stories, slideshow photos and pre-recorded audios to ancestors in the Family Tree. The course is the same as offered at over 4700 Family History Centers around the world.
It is important to start with Part One as subsequent lessons refer back to it. Before starting the course download and print out the Companion Worksheet for the particular lesson you are taking. Use the worksheet to take notes for later reference. You can always return to this page to review the video tutorials. Good luck and enjoy giving voice to your ancestors!!
NOTE: Some of the information in the tutorials is outdated since our recent upgrade. However, most of the upgraded elements focused on the user experience from a design standpoint and should be easy to apply.
