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).

Blogiversary - 2 years

Today this blog is officially 2 years old! And once again it is time for RootsTech this week.

I have been busy preparing for RootsTech since September 2016 when I was invited to serve as the RootsTech Ambassador Coordinator. I have helped provide communication from the FamilySearch-RootsTech Team with 100 social media ambassadors; many of whom are also speakers, vendors, and entrepreneurs. It has been an amazing ride. Keeping the keynote speaker announcements secret was tough and caused giddy outbursts at times; resulting in strange looks from my family! All the hard work culminates this week! I will be posting all about RootsTech throughout this week and I'm sure into the coming weeks as the volume of information is always so much. It's like trying to drink from a fire hose!

I also have some blog posts I've been thinking about and working on over the last year; yet I haven't shared them. I hope to "catch up" on some older posts and I have some new things to share for this year too.

This past year, I have also been busy in other aspects of my home, family, and personal life and have found that each day is full of "everyday family history". I'm going to share a series of posts around that theme. I hope some of what I've discovered over the past 6-8 months will also help you identify those "everyday family history" moments in your own life.

If there is anything family history related you are interested in learning more about, let me know in the comments or message me through my Facebook page and I'll do what I can to answer your questions either personally or in a future blog post.

I'm excited to share the things I've been learning and all the new things yet to learn.

Thanks for joining me on this ride!


  1. Congratulations on your 2 year Blogiversary!

    I'd like to know if the new browser based FamilySearch Indexing system will be released soon. Any news on that?

    1. I don't have the official date of when it will be released to the public. However, if you want, you can have access to it now:

    2. I found out a few days ago that web indexing is now being rolled out slowly. And I already have it! The link is under Indexing on I see it even before I sign in.
