Tracing Mormon Pioneers

Documenting the Mormon Trail Experience

You can get a feel for some of the trail experiences by reading first hand accounts of the travel made by members of your ancestor's company. To look these up you need to consult the bibliography for the company. Once you have a title you can then look it up in the Family History Catalog under Title/Author for the reference to identify the microfilm. The pioneer bibliography page can be consulted for more recent publications of articles and books on the pioneers and their settlement in the West. Some of the pioneer experiences by Scandinavian Saints are one their own page: Letters: Scandinavian Saints write about America. Another great source of material are articles written by those associated with the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.
