SOCIETY OF THE SONS OF UTAH PIONEERS
has grown to about 2,400 at the present time. Life memberships or annual
memberships may be purchased; the money collected helps run the organization.
The national headquarters building is in Salt Lake City at 3301 East
2920 South; it is located on the edge of the hollow coming out of the
mouth of Parley's Canyon. It is an appropriate location because it was
from Parley's Canyon that many pioneers came into the valley. The building
houses a growing research library where anyone can come to research
their ancestors. Donations of manuscript histories, genealogical information,
and other items of historical interest are welcomed. Building tours
are offered, and the building is open five days a week. The building
also is used for chapter dinner meetings, family gatherings, dinners,
golden wedding anniversaries, seminars, and other community activities.
