Today, the Church announced that all family history callings at the area, stake, or ward level will now be called temple and family history consultants.
The primary responsibility of all temple and family history consultants is to give personalized help to leaders and families to find the names of deceased ancestors, take the names to the temple and provide necessary ordinances for them, and teach their family and others to do the same.
In addition to their primary responsibility, some temple and family history consultants at the stake and ward levels may be assigned as lead temple and family history consultants. At the stake level, lead consultants will assist the high councilor over family history and provide training, as needed, to stake and ward consultants. At the ward level, lead consultants will assist the high priests group leader and provide training to other ward consultants.
Other secondary assignments may be given to some stake temple and family history consultants to lead stake indexing efforts or stake family history center operations. This supersedes the former stake indexing director and stake family history center director callings.
This is just a name change, which doesn’t require anyone to be released and called again.
