Family History Workshops

The workshops support and supplement on-campus family history courses at BYU. In multiple sessions per week, student TAs teach the week's topic and answer questions.

For the 2021-22 academic year, workshops return to in-class instruction. The 12-week workshop schedule is shown below.
