Said Dennis Brimhall, FamilySearch CEO, “This booklet is a way for [all Church members] to immediately reach out and start talking to parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends; to gather family photos and stories; and then have ward family history consultants help them enter this precious and priceless information in a place where it will be archived free and for generations to come.” Brimhall said that 95% of the grandparents of Church members have not been added to Family Tree.
There are pages for self, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Most of each page is set aside for stories and memories. Space is also available for a photograph and basic vital information. The margin contains reminders to enter the information into Family Tree and to perform temple ordinances.
The booklet is available in 24 languages. Additional copies of the booklet (item number 10974) may be ordered for a ward or branch from a Church distribution center or online at store.lds.org.
