Family Organizations: For the Fun of It!

“It is important for us … to cultivate in our own family a sense that we belong together eternally,” President Spencer W. Kimball has said. “… We ought to encourage our children to know their relatives. We need to talk of them, make effort to correspond with them, visit them, join family organizations, etc.” (Ensign, Nov. 1974, p. 112.)

The following reports suggest ways to make family reunions fun as well as effective: how to get maximum participation, how to make family history interesting to children, how to accomplish genealogical responsibilities as a large ancestral organization, and how to organize a mainly non-LDS family organization.
