Your help is needed in this effort. Please spread the word around your family that this resource is available and contact us to share your thoughts and comments on how this resource can be improved.

An ongoing effort is underway to gather family history data (photos, journals, letters, narratives, documents, etc.) in digital format from the various descendant families of George Q. Cannon and make them available here for viewing and download.
