Find Your Pioneer Heritage!

Ok. Do you have a FamilySearch account?
Well, if you go to their home page you'll see this "Have Pioneer Ancestors?" link.
Click on it! For real!

After you sign in, it will take you to a list with the ancestors in your family tree
that were in pioneer companies.
Mine looked like this:

And then I scrolled down the page to see about 30 ancestors!
Isn't that amazing!!

On each person you can click on their name, company, or trail experiences
to learn more about their individual life or things that their company experienced during 
the expedition to Utah.

Check it out and let us know if you learn anything new!
I seriously just spent two hours on it and have barely scratched the surface!
What an awesome way to spend Pioneer Day.
