    Ep 33 - Discover Your Pioneer Connection


    After being in a bit of a family history funk for the past month or so, I decided to create something just for you (and me) to help you learn about and CONNECT to a pioneer ancestor. Don't have Mormon Pioneer ancestors? No worries! You can choose any of your ancestors who have already been pretty heavily researched by others. Sometimes we get so caught up in looking for people in our tree that need their temple work done, that we forget to connect to those direct-line ancestors whose connection should be stronger with. Listen to learn how I feel about connecting to these ancestors and why it matters and find out about the 4 part video series that will be starting on July 3rd to celebrate Pioneer Day.Sign up for "Pioneer Connection - learn and connect to your pioneer ancestors" to get reminders and links to weekly worksheets. Connect with me:Instagram @moderngenealogyFacebookWebsiteYouTube
