back Nauvoo, 2001 back
From Below
Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois. The City Beautiful. The City of Joseph. Joseph Smith’s city on a hill. A place of poignant and important memories for Americans, for Latter-day Saints, and, as it turns out, peculiarly so for our family.

On our way to the West Coast in October, 2001, Valerie and I spent a couple of days in Nauvoo, poking around among surviving artifacts and records and becoming more aware of our family connections in this historic spot. We arrived with a lot of questions. Picked up some answers and also new questions. By the time we returned for a follow-up visit the next month, we had identified 36 family members who took part in the brief, tumultuous, and (all in all) glorious Nauvoo experience.
