Give your spring-cleaning a second thought—people have found treasures ranging from ancient Egypt to the Beatles hidden in the trash.
Some lucky folk have cleaned up in more ways than one when they found valuable artefacts lurking in rubbish piles and cluttered homes

Do you have Mormon pioneer ancestry? You can discover your connection to early pioneers through Pioneer Ancestors, an ancestor search that highlights the struggles and successes of early pioneers. This collaboration between FamilySearch and the Church History Department will allow you search for pioneers in your own family tree, explore pioneer companies, and read first-person trail accounts. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/3ekss #IAmAPioneer

What stories have gone untold by U.S. immigrants? An Ellis Island museum strives to be relevant to more recent immigrants to America by sharing their experiences. 
Twelve million immigrants passed through Ellis Island before it closed as an inspection station in 1954. The museum is expanding to tell the history of immigration to the U.S. in more recent decades.

This 1850s summer kitchen includes a vaulted root cellar, squirrel-tail bake oven, hand pump, and a walk-in fireplace. Can you guess what they used the fireplace for? "Included in the building is a walk-in fireplace, previously used for butchering, making soap, heating laundry water, etc. A brick squirrel-tail bakeoven was located outside, attached to the fireplace." http://oak.ctx.ly/r/3gchc

Raise bees. Take a photo of 62 waterfalls. Try 100 really weird foods. What do these things have in common with pioneers? While this bucket list might not be a first, Steve Anderson is a pioneer by his example and enthusiasm for life and wants his children to also have pioneer experiences for themselves. He and his brother have completed over 3000 items on the bucket list. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/3ed7h #IAmAPioneer
