Family Home Evening: Faith in God (Prepare a Pedigree Chart...) Week 1

One of the requirements in the Faith In God book under the Learning And Living The Gospel Category is to "Prepare a pedigree chart with your name and your parents' and grandparents' names. Prepare a family group record for your family and share a family story. Discuss how performing temple work blesses families." 

This can easily be completed as part of a Family Home Evening.  Here is how ours is planned to go:

Family Home Evening on Learning about your heritage and doing family history work.  There is so much to do with this that I am planning on doing it for a couple weeks.  This is week one.

Welcome everyone to Family Night

Sing: "Family History-I Am Doing It" pg 94  Children's Songbook

Have a member of the family member say the prayer

Discuss any family business

Scripture: Abraham 1:31 

***Before hand you may want to view the information on Family History Stories and decide what you feel you would like to share with your family***

Show this video: Discover Your Story

Start out small, give each family member the a copy of "My Family Booklet".  You can download a copy here. (It is found on the right hand side where it says, "download a copy here."  Have pictures printed out a head of time of each family member.  Have each family member paste their picture of themselves on the page labeled "About Me".  Then help each family member answer the questions in this section.  Continue pasting the appropriate pictures and answering the questions on each page.  You can go as far as your family would like. You could also complete some on another day.  It might be fun on the grandparent part for the kids to interview their grandparents and find out more about them.

Fill out the Family Pedigree Chart.  There is one in the booklet or you are welcome to use this one.

Prepare a Family Group Record. You can use this form found here.

Discuss the blessings that come from performing temple work.

Bear testimonies on the importance of keeping a family history and learning about your heritage.

Close with a Family Prayer.
