John Pack’s “mission letter” for his France mission. I don’t think they got formal mission calls, I think the purpose of this letter was to prove their credentials if anyone asked, similar to the small version of our mission call we kept in our “white handbook” when I served my mission. For the best copy of this document, which is signed by Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Willard Richards, click this link (below):
John Pack Family History
The John Pack Family Association officers would like to revitalize the family’s genealogical research organization. With prime movers Kathleen Skinner and Russell Pack on full-time missions and our Family Historian Mark Gardner unable to regularly meet with the genealogical committee, we’ve come to a virtual standstill in this area. We are not even sure now who has been serving on the genealogical committee.
So, let’s get organized and plan a path forward!
Those of you who have served on the general genealogical committee and would like to continue, please identify yourselves and give us your suggestions. Those of you who would like to join the general committee please identify yourselves. E-mail a note to our president Andi Zorn: [email protected] .
Our professional genealogist, Mark Gardner, will continue as JPFA Genealogist, and he has time and is committed to reviewing the decisions and activities of the committee and will advise it. However, a working committee lead and an associate lead are yet to be chosen. Suggestions?
David R. Pack, our past president who withdrew as president to spend more time on family history work, is willing to lead the project but would prefer someone with more genealogical expertise to do so.
We have in mind first to define a plan for building an information base: what we know, the status of our records, and the technology and procedure for collaboration. Then, we can move into specific research ideas, methods, and assignments.
We propose preparing for committee meetings by first sharing questions, ideas, opinions, and proposals through e-mails and then making decisions and assignments through discussion in meetings. We expect the meetings to be monthly if possible, and facilitated by using Skype, but we are open to suggestions. Help us be realistic and practical.
