I have been spending some time recently researching my family’s genealogy, which is quite easy, as my father’s family were all Mormon pioneers, so all the research has been done by my more diligent Mormon relatives.
Anyway, I just discovered the log cabin built by my great-great grandfather Erastus Bingham in 1853 is now a theme park attraction in the Pioneer Village section of the Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, Utah. People now pay admission to see where my ancestors made soap and ate corn pone. There is probably a funnel cake concession right next door to the very house where my great-great-grandmother gave birth to my great-grandfather. I could probably sit on my great-great-grandfather’s porch and watch fireworks over the Ferris wheel.
Any odd things you discovered in your family tree?
