We did it! Day 40 of our 40 Day Family History Challenge. I hope you now have planted in your heart the love for your ancestors as you began this amazing journey with us. If you are just stumbling upon our website, start your own 40 day challenge today! There are links on the right side of our website with all of the 40 day posts. Join the millions of people around the world as we continue to search for our ancestors.
I went to the temple with the youth in our ward to do some family names that the kids found during this 40 day challenge. It was such a sweet experience. One of the highlights was seeing one of our newest baptized beehives (a young women who is 12 years old) who was just baptized less than 2 weeks ago, be baptized for her ancestors. Such an amazing experience.
If you are new to this website, check out this post about why it is important to not only find our ancestors, but why Mormons take family names to the temple here.
Finally, today's daily task is to write in your journal your experience as you followed the 40 day challenge and began your family history journey. If you don't have a journal, print out the journal page below.
