The Official George Q. Cannon Family History Collection

George Q. Cannon

This is the Official George Q. Cannon Family History Website. While this site is still in it's infancy, our hope is to build it into a well organized, comprehensive resource that you can use to find the information you are looking for ranging from photos, journals, letters, and pedigree charts to contact information for the family association committee members and other family representatives to information on news, upcoming events and reunions.

The George Q. Cannon Journals are currently online at, and the exhibit current on display at the LDS Church History Library in downtown Salt Lake City, there is now also an online exhibit at

This site is part of a network of linked websites all containing family history information relative to the Cannon family.

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.

Please consider sharing copies of family history treasures you may have.
