An article regarding the descendants of Joseph and Emma Smith (Oct. 5) tells of an organization dedicated to bringing together the descendants of Joseph and Emma Smith. This is an admirable endeavor, but it appears to be somewhat selective. Only "legitimate" descendants are being gathered together. The descendants of Joseph Smith by his polygamous unions — such as myself — are being ignored. It seems somewhat discriminatory to ignore the polygamous descendants of Joseph Smith.
