No genealogist should be without this book! Told here for the first time, the history of the Genealogical Society of Utah (now known as the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) is, at one level, the 100-year history of an organization. At another level, it is the intersection of individual stories telling of the dedication of Susa Young Gates, the tireless determination of Joseph Fielding Smith, the enthusiasm of Archibald F. Bennett, and the daring of Paul Langheinrich.
Beginning with Malachi's prophecy that the hearts of the children would be turned to the fathers, the story is one of astounding and sustained efforts that have changed the hearts of millions. This book is crucial to the understanding of LDS life and work.
