Trekkers where asked to research the name of pioneer ancestor and write it on their wristband to be worn during Trek. As we walked the same trail they traveled, we have gained a greater appreciation for their trials and honor them by walking in their footsteps.

Many Trekkers chose to publish a brief biography about their pioneer ancestor. Click on a Pioneer Ancestor Name below to read the biography.
