The cover of the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel Database brochure.

Pioneer testimony: I think this beautiful video testimony from Elder Dallin H. Oaks on Pioneers, both past and present, should be mandatory viewing on the 24th of July. Celebrate and honor those pioneers who go (and went) forth to show us the way to follow Jesus Christ.

Pioneer database: Through the wonders of technology, you can search the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel Database, and this handy brochure describes how. Take a moment this Pioneer Day weekend to see if any of your ancestors “walked and walked and walked,” or just peruse the site to learn more about these faithful pioneers.

Pioneer game: Looking for a Fun Game to Play on Pioneer Day? Well, this blogger has a delightfully funny and yet easy way to remember the pioneers, enjoy time together as a family and have a ball! It’s the “name game,” pioneer style. Enjoy!
