Temple and Family History Manual

Postby utphotoman » Thu Oct 22, 2015 11:31 am

[font=]I cant find either a physical or electronic copy of this manual. Is this still on the approved curriculum list for classes, and if so are there any recommendations on where to find a manual that I can link to the class?[/font]

The class is listed as part of Sunday School curriculum here. But I'm not finding the manual. My personal best guess is that either it's undergoing revision or the approved plan isn't based on a student manual.

I found a PDF of the Instructor's Guide:

And a French PDF of the Member's Guide:

It's not on the 2016 curriculum list. I wonder if the continued emphasis on the "My Family" booklet has to do something with it being difficult to find. https://www.lds.org/bc/content/ldsorg/m ... f?lang=eng

It looks like the Member's Guide was online as recently as September.

Via Archive.org:
https://web.archive.org/web/20150629001317/https://www.lds.org/manual/members-guide-to-temple-and-family-history-work?lang=eng

Here it is as a PDF:
https://web.archive.org/web/20150325050628/https://www.lds.org/bc/content/shared/content/english/pdf/language-materials/36795_eng.pdf?lang=eng

The description for the Member's Guide in September 2015 says that the Member's Guide is "for use by members and instructors." The same wording goes back to at least August 2012. So, the Instructor's Guide seems to have been phased out a while ago.

However, the Instructor's Guide appears to have been online as late as July 2013. Here's a link:

And a PDF:

There's a current Institute manual called "Introduction to Family History" that might have some helpful material:
