How to Get the Most out of your LDS Ancestry Account
The regular monthly meetings of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group are held on the second Saturday of each month, except December, from 9 AM to noon. The meetings are free and open to the public. They are held at the Red Brick LDS Chapel, 4050 North 650 East (Timpview Drive), Provo, Utah, usually in the Cultural Hall.

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints may have a free Ancestry.com account. Come learn why you would want an Ancestry account, how to set one up, and what you can do with your Ancestry.com account. We will discuss Trees, Search, and the Image Viewer, will touch on DNA, and take a look at some of the new things Ancestry recently released. Come with your questions – we will try to leave plenty of time for discussion.
Jim Mosher began his family history journey as an employee of Ancestry.com, where he spent seven years working on the Ancestry search experience, image viewer, tree integrations, and big data analysis. He is the author of two books on using Ancestry. Jim also serves as a family history consultant for the Lindon 21st Ward and the BYU YSA 10th Stake. When he doesn’t know the answer to a family history or FamilySearch question, he always asks his lovely wife, Kelly.
