Relief Society's 177th Birthday

Familysearch.org has a new ap that shows you if you have Mormon pioneers- if any of your ancestors were members of the original Relief Society organized in Nauvoo, Illinois in 1842. I have three: Sarah McGuickin Malin and Catherine Essick on my Vernon side, and Adah Winchell Clements on my Johnson line. How fun! Check it out if you are interested https://www.familysearch.org/campaign/reliefsociety We had a special party today and luncheon to celebrate and honor our pioneers Relief Society founders.
