All I can say about genealogy is those who it comes easy for, and who enjoy it, should be doing it. I have heard there are a lot of resources on the net, but I have yet to find one (or look for one) other than The Martin and Willie companies were the most tragic of all. Have you found their stories? It seems every single one of the survivors remained true to their faith. It took faith to make the trek, and by the time they arrived their faith was such that it could not be broken. Hard to fathom such faith could grow in tragedy. It takes that same kind of faith to live every principle of the Gospel. And it grows stronger as you do. I don't call this "blind" faith, I call it "active" faith.

I have in my office the picture of the handcart company pushing forward in a blizzard with angels depicted beside them helping to push along. To me that says we all have angels beside us helping us through the rough spots. Have you ever imagined going through your life with an unseen audience in the back ground? Eirie.
