The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is hosting a Family History Fair, free of charge and open to the public, on Saturday January 20, 2018, from 9am to 1pm, at their Abilene church building located at 3325 N. 12 th St. Both novice and expert family history researchers are invited to attend. Classes will cover the use of a free online resource called FamilySearch.org, one of the most popular genealogical websites in the world. FamilySearch.org is sponsored by the Church, and visitors to the site can search over two billion digital images and indexes of records from all over the world. The Church’s commitment to help people connect with their ancestors is rooted in the Church’s belief that families are meant to be central to our lives and that family relationships are intended to continue beyond this life.
