The Family History Library at BYU has created a video to support ward family history consultants. While training for the calling of family history consultants is the responsibility of the ecclesiastical authority, we hope this video will be helpful and instructive. Click here to view the recording or press play on the video below. This 11-minute video mentions the course Religion 261, which has since been changed to History 205 (HIST 205).
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' website also has instructions on fulfilling the calling of ward temple and family history consultant. Click here to visit the site.
