Now at the age of 11 years old she is RootsTech's youngest social media Ambassador! She will be posting about RootsTech on her mom's social channels at the end of this month. I'm excited to check out her posts and see RootsTech through the eyes of this youth. You can follow along at:

Lily is currently working on Indexing records and will soon be helping to teach 9 and 10 year old girls how to Index at her Stake Activity Day event. She has taken family names to the temple three times since The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced, as of January 1, 2019, that worthy 11 year old youth can now participate in temple ordinances.
Lily's family participates in family history adventures. Recently they visited Fillmore, Pine Valley, and Cove Fort; all small cities and towns in Utah. In Fillmore they found a museum and walked through a hallway where the walls were covered in old photos. There on the wall were photos of some of her Ashby ancestors! They also visited the local cemetery and took photos of the headstones. While at it they took photos of other graves and uploaded them to Find a Grave so other families can find headstone photos.
Lily is researching the Zacher surname from Germany and wants to learn more about all her family lines. She is particularly interested in family stories and in locating more family photos.
If you are attending RootsTech this year, look out for Lily and if you see her, make sure to tell her Hello!
