A Surprising Relative!

Last week, I met a couple who had been doing some family history research and found out that they had a Mormon ancestor in the 1840's. They didn't know very much about the church but they did find out that this ancestor had lived in Nauvoo so they came to see what it was all about. I was at the Lands and Records office that day and helped them find the property their ancestor and his 3 sons had owned. They were so excited as we plotted out the property on a map so they could go find it in historic Nauvoo of today. We even had a chance to talk about the faith in Jesus Christ that brought the Mormons to Nauvoo in the first place. They were very glad they had come and hoped to be able to come back to see more. Being a missionary and sharing the gospel is great!!


  1. Experiences like that never get old!! They come all the time as missionaries and I love them too!! It is so exciting. Glad you're having a great time. Love you both, Sister Draper

  2. Awesome! Fun to read your stories!

  3. those are always the best. Happens enough at land and records
