Bob Shaw

Bob and his wife are now serving as church service missionaries at the FamilySearch Library in Orange. Other callings have been director of the Cypress Stake FHC and High Council—Temple and Family History. Bob’s background includes having been raised on an orange orchard in La Habra and his family roots here predate the establishment of Orange County. Bob most enjoys helping others organize and begin their own family record.
The FHC Director session will focus on available reference materials and the FamilySearch wiki for training consultants and FHC Directors. Bob and his wife also share their best practices—and welcome Q&A.
