Fun Fact Friday 1/23/15

Some of you know I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I have written several posts about being a member of this church, and as I looked at the calendar I knew exactly what I wanted to write about today:

Twenty-seven years ago TODAY I made the choice to be baptized.  I was 15!  As they say, “Where has the time gone?!”  Geez, I could wax philosophical.  But, I won’t.  I have a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel and I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God.  I know it.  I have a testimony of Family History work and the importance of seeking out our kindred.  Just this week I was working on the Family Search site and searching for sources on one of my mom’s line.  I found one of my ancestors listed on a U.S. Census but who was not listed on the website.  Which means no one had any record of her!  Quickly I did some more digging searching and was able to verify who she was via the sources (I LOVE the sources!)  And this was all in a matter of less than 1 hour!

I wonder what they all did right after this picture was taken?
