The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

RootsTech 2016: Steve Rockwood - You Are The Heart Doctors For Your Family

Here are some of my takeaways from this session:


  • Everyone lives on in stories, pictures, and lessons.
  • Focus on the person (not the search)
  • Reach their hearts in 60 seconds
  • What have you felt?
  • Feelings are core and profound
  • Feel belonging and love
  • You are inspired and can be inspiring
  • Make family history relevant to your immediate family



5 experience areas

Reach out to people's hearts - you are heart doctors for your family - this is a gathering of heart specialists. 
What are the "funny ties" that will build family ties?

Weave family history into everyday life.

I had the opportunity to participate in a Media Hub Sofa Chat with Steve.

Here are some of my takeaways from the chat:


  • How do we bring all members of the family into family history?
  • Going global to soften the soil for new markets.
  • Fine tuning each of the 5 experiences over time.
  • Teenagers and millennials want to give back right now.
  • Mobile will be first in new technologies.
  • Focusing on "searchable" records.
  • Every family has members to fulfill all the different roles.
  • We've created the tree, now we need to embellish it with ornaments (photos, stories).
