Help others experience the joy that comes from connecting with family by starting a conversation about family stories.
Reminders of Who We Are
Family stories give us a sense of who we are and connect us to our heritage. Connecting with our earthly families reminds us that we are all children of a loving Father in Heaven. We are brothers and sisters and have a responsibility to help each other return home to Him.
Connect Through Conversations
Sharing family stories and listening to one another helps create understanding, empathy and trust. Relationships are strengthened when we share what makes us who we are.
Here are simple questions you can ask others to start a conversation:
What stories do you know about your ancestors?
Do you have any traits in common with them?
What are some of your family traditions?
Where are your ancestors from?
Create a Discovery Experience
Your conversation may lead to an opportunity to help someone discover more about their family. FamilySearch.org and the Family Tree app are great resources that are available to everyone for free.
