Family History Workshops

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

Workshops and Open Labs Spring 2024

Spring 2024 workshops are formal lessons on family history topics that give students the opportunity to learn and practice skills that will enhance class performance. Open labs supplement the workshops by offering time for students to work on their assignments while a TA is present to answer questions.

Workshops and Labs will be held April 30th through June 14th

Workshop and Lab Hours Location: 2240 HBLL

Workshops and lab hours are held in the glass enclosed classroom located on the 2nd floor of the library (the Family History section).
