Family History




Each youth attending Trek will have the opportunity to choose a Pioneer they can connect with along the journey. Youth will either find a Handcart Pioneer from their own family tree, or they can choose one from a special binder we have compiled, which includes the names and personal stories of several Handcart Pioneers and their respective journeys. This binder will be made available in all buildings during our scheduled Trek sewing nights on Wednesday, January 16th & Wednesday, January 30th.

Brother Craig Dalley from Plano 5th ward is serving as the Trek Family History Specialist and can coordinate additional training efforts for our youth as needed. You may also contact any of the ward or Stake Family History Consultants during this process. Supplemental training will give youth the confidence to complete the task of finding the name of an historical Pioneer who braved the journey westward!
