with individual one-on-one training for each student. The
curriculum includes training in the research process and computer
training covering PAF 5.0, all aspects of FamilySearch, FamilySearch
on the Internet, and clearing names for the temple using the
New FamilySearch program. Attendees are encouraged to bring
any of their own Family History information with them. A temple
