Give the Gift of Family History this Christmas
by Kathryn Grant

This year, are you looking for meaningful Christmas gifts ó something beyond the latest gadget or trend? Consider giving the gift of family history. It may take a little more planning, but family history gifts offer eternal value as they connect us to our loved ones both here and beyond the veil.

Here are some possibilities:

Start now so you have plenty of time to plan.

Wilford Woodruff said, ďOh, I wish many times that the veil were lifted off the face of the Latter-day Saints. I wish we could see and know the things of God as they do who are laboring for the salvation of the human family who are in the spirit world; for if this were so, this whole people, with very few, if any, exceptions, would lose all interest in the riches of the world, and instead thereof their whole desires and labors would be directed to redeem their dead.Ē (Quoted in the Family History Student Manual, 2012).

The gift of family history is one that endures eternally.
