Family History

Last fall, I started to do a little indexing and dabbling around in my family history.  I was a little leery to do work on my side because my grandmother and her sisters had already done so much. So I assumed there wasn't much to do.

Little did I know...I have a neighbor who is very involved in family history and he gave me a little info to make it easier when finding names that needed work. The next thing I knew, I had a total of almost 200 names from both sides of the family. I also found out more about those ancestors that have already had their work done. Several of my ancestors came to the Cache Valley and played an important part in the building of the Logan temple and settling the area. 

Once I had the names printed, I took Emilee and Haydn to the temple so they could be a part of the whole process. It was a great day. And I'm grateful for those who came before me and sacrificed so much. But most importantly, those who had faith and were obedient to the gospel.

Amy, your work is wonderful!! Thank you for taking your time to do this work. You need to share this with all your adult siblings and your in-laws and get them all involved. Thank you sweet daughter!!
