April FHTC Video Contest

Family History Tech Coach is a site dedicated to making the blessings of family history work more accessible by making the research process more straightforward. We coach you on how to use technology to find your ancestors!

Make Family History a Bigger Part of Your Life

We so apprecieated the messages shared in General Conference and heard their call to make family history work a bigger part of our lives, especially now while the temples are temporarily closed. You may feel like you’ve got a lot to learn before you can feel confident in your family history skills, but we believe the best way to learn is to teach. That leads us to our April Family History Tech Coach Contest!
