And now for some real family history!
That’s right, you no longer have to settle for silly second and third-hand stories about the Aurora Branch. Now it’s time to hear about it from the horse’s mouth!
What do you remember about those days? Climbing the stairs to the second floor of the Odd Fellows Hall where the branch met for about 20 years? Attending meetings in the Seventh Day Adventist church on Plum Street? Holding missionary farewells at Lincoln Elementary School or Allen School?
If any of you know anyone who was part of the Aurora, Illinois branch (1932 to 1965), please have them visit this new blog about the Old Aurora Branch to share their own memories. You’ll be contributing to a fun portrait of an interesting part of Mormon history: The growth of early “mission field” offshoots from the SLC-based church.
