Histories

The members of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) have prepared and collected thousands of biographies of early pioneers (1847-1869). Search for a pioneer history on the website. Women are listed in the index by their married name. You can request a copy of the history if you are a member of DUP or a direct descendant of the pioneer.

Hint: searching by just the last name or by just the first name will help you find histories entered into the database by different spellings.

Photographs

The organization also has photographs of many of the early church members. Copies can by ordered through the mail or on their website at Photo Collection Link.
