If you go to LDS.org and sign in, you can see a long list of resources from a link at the menu at the top of the startup page. Among those resources are those for family history. If you review the resources for family history, you will also find a link to resources for Family History Callings. Here you will see training for a Family History Consultant as well as the following:
- Stake Indexing Director
- Family History Center Director
- Area Family History Adviser
- FamilySearch Support Missionary
- Stake and Ward Leaders
If you take the time to review the online resource for Family History Consultants, you will soon see that the calling involves much more than merely holding a Sunday School class once or twice a year. The resources are mostly short videos in the following categories:
- Understand Your Calling
- Work with Members
- Work with Leaders
- Prepare Names for the Temple
- Do Your Own Family History
Clear back in 1995, President Howard W. Hunter said the following in the Ensign:
There are some members who engage in temple work but fail to do family history research on their own family lines. Although they perform a divine service in assisting others, they lose a blessing by not seeking their own kindred dead as divinely directed by latter-day prophets.
I have learned that those who engage in family history research and then perform the temple ordinance work for those whose names they have found will know the additional joy of receiving both halves of the blessing.
President Howard W. Hunter, “A Temple-Motivated People,” Ensign, February 1995, 4–5In order for the Temple and Family History work to proceed in any Ward, it is necessary for the Family History Consultants to learn the entire responsibility of their callings.
