Greetings, Everyone!

Last Friday, we were blessed to hear the words of our beloved prophet, Russell M. Nelson.  To help us through these trying times, he counseled us to show gratitude, which will help relieve the burdens we have been experiencing and produce an amazing healing effect in our lives.  An excellent way to show gratitude is to engage in family history work for our ancestors on the other side of the veil, who have helped shape our lives today.

Restrictions related to the pandemic have made it challenging to receive instruction for those interested in getting started in family work or to find answers to complex situations for more advanced individuals.  Fortunately, the Los Angeles FamilySearch Library – (the largest family history library in our area), has just announced that they will be offering VIRTUAL classes via Zoom.  They will also be offering “one-on-one” assistance Monday – Saturday via Zoom as well.  Check out the calendar of classes and/or times individualized help is available by clicking on the link below:

In his November 20, 2020 message of hope and healing, President Russell M. Nelson declared:
“We can give thanks for our families, friends, and loved ones.  We can give thanks for the opportunity to help, cherish, and serve one another, which makes life so much more meaningful.”

Please pass this message on to the members of your family and ward/branch members.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate all you do to gather the sons and daughters of Israel on the other side of the veil.  There will come a time when you will also receive gratitude for your efforts from the ancestors you have served.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
