FamilySearch holds the world's largest library of genealogy records with over 3.5 billion ancestor records and 12 billion names. LegacyStories is proud to be the first web application to attain Tree Connect certification by FamilySearch.
This special certification allows LegacyStories members to search for and link their writings, photos and oral narratives to ancestors found in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree. This is a pilot program and you are invited to participate in this revolutionary technology.
How it Works
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 taught at Family History Centers and the main Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
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!!
