Remembering the Dead

Throughout Latin America, many people celebrate “El Dia de Los Muertos” in early November by remembering their ancestors.

One fun way you might remember your ancestors is by learning and sharing their stories. For instance, Thia learned that her Grandpa lost an arm while killing a lion that was bothering his town in Rhodesia in the 1920s, eventually losing his arm.

You can start by talking to your parents or grandparents about stories they remember, or you can set up a family history account at FamilySearch.org. If you learn any fun stories about your ancestors along the way, let us know at ftsoy@ChurchofJesusChrist.org.
