    Thank you for the MHA updates; they are essential for the non-member public with an interest in the history and heritage. They have always been very inclusive and focused on giving (for the most part) the unvarnished, factual history.

    The closest I can come is to attend an occasional Daughters of the Utah Pioneer meeting with my mother in St. George. The older I get, the more I value the hard work of research that historians do. My generation is the last living link between our frontier grandparents' live stories and reading the book versions. I was always impressed that my grandmother served and remained supportive of the DUP all her life (1899-1995). She instilled the importance of retaining those histories, warts and all, for future generations.

    That the MHA is inclusive of non-LDS speaks to its integrity and true historical purpose. It is one of the few places where ex-Mormons can enjoy fellowship without judging from LDS, as we focus on the stories, journals and history of our common ancestors.

    Please continue reporting on the meetings and the special presentations.
