Church Records - Plain City Ward, Weber, Utah

A few months ago, on one of my trips to the Family History Library in Salt Lake I discovered the Plain City Ward Records from 1859-1948 (US/CAN Film #26388), which included a record of members. Since the Lund's had settled there this was a goldmine!

Now that I'm turning my attention to the Taylor line, I'm starting at the end. Remember, in genealogy we start with the most recent information and work our way back. That means starting with the Victor Erastus Lund and Edith Pearl Taylor family.

I did find a great resource online, the Taylor Family Association which has done a lot of research on this line of Taylors. However, I already found a few errors when reviewing their database, which I already submitted to the moderator. Basically, this means that I will need to go through all the information I found there and verify it with some kind of source. At least it gives me a general direction to work in.

For now, let's take a look at these LDS Church Records for the Victor Lund family, from the late 1930's.
