If you love spending time on your family history but find yourself overwhelmed, know that you can make significant progress with just five minutes a day. 2018 RootsTech presenter Deborah Gamble shared 20 five-minute tasks with attendees that they can use to keep themselves motivated and progressing in their family history efforts.

2) Add living people to your family tree.

Make sure to mark Living to protect your relative’s privacy.
