Pioneer Day 24 July

Ol' Myrt just spoke via cell with her 7-year-old granddaughter Aubrey who often asks about our family’s pioneer ancestors. I had forgotten that today was the 24th of July, which is an official holiday in Utah commemorating the arrival of the first Mormon pioneers as they first looked upon the Salt Lake Valley, and leader Brigham Young stated “This is the right place”. Aubrey and family are going on a picnic with neighbors for dinner tonight to celebrate.

Thanks for writing to include your suggestions of online resources for early LDS Church genealogy researchers.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
