Relatives in the Joseph Smith Papers
FamilySearch.org is making all sorts of connections to your ancestors and relatives. This notice came telling me that my ancestor, John Tanner, was mentioned in the extensive Joseph Smith Papers. After signing in to FamilySearch, this is what I saw from the link.
Apparently, there are now 22 mentions of John Tanner in the documents online.
You can explore the Joeseph Smith Papers and perhaps find mention of one of your own relatives. FamilySearch is adding links to this and other online historical records collections. Here is a screenshot of John Tanner's entry in the Family Tree showing his connections in the Labels.
