You're Related to Who??

This is a painting of Heber J. Grant. He was the 7th President of the Church. Well, as I served in the Lands and Records historic site on Friday, I was able to talk to one of his decendants. The couple came to see if there was any information on the Grant family in Nauvoo. Well, I was able to map the location of Heber J. Grant's father's land showing where the home had been in historic Nauvoo. We also had a file of digital information that I put on a CD for them to take home. At one point, he mentioned that he wasn't a member of the LDS church. With this in mind, we three went through the file together so I could explain the background of all the information. He loves history and was interested in knowing how it all fit together. In the end, I asked him if he'd like to know more about the church. He stunned his wife when he said yes and that the missionaries could come to their home to tell them more. It was an exciting day!
