Leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have instructed members of the LDS Church to trace their family histories for nearly 175 years, ever since the Prophet Joseph Smith received revelations from the Lord about the eternal nature of families. Thousands of pedigrees were generated by nineteenth-century LDS pioneers in order to complete temple ordinances in obedience to these commandments. For living members of the LDS Church who wish to keep the ball rolling and continue tracing their pioneer ancestors’ lineages back in time, it is important that this material is consulted prior to beginning research anew. In many families, such as those of Welsh descent, they offer clues that cannot be replicated through traditional genealogical research, and in all families, they will help current researchers get off on the right foot. Unfortunately, because this information is not easily accessible, many people today overlook this invaluable resource.
