A new study from BYU shows that participating in family history research reduces students’ anxiety by 20% and increases self-esteem by 8%.

At a time when anxiety is becoming increasingly prevalent among the rising generation, a common question that parents, teachers, professors, government officials and Church leaders are asking is “How do we help the youth and young adults of today?”

BYU’s study published in The Journal of Genealogy and Family History found that those who participate more in family history work have higher self-esteem, reduced anxiety, and greater resilience.
