A chalk-drawn tree in Union Square grabbed the attention of passersby last month. Intrigued by the statement "find your family" written on the ground, many stopped to investigate.
Missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the New York New York North Mission, under the direction of President Tom Morgan, created the drawing. After having success last year with a chalk drawing of the plan of salvation, missionaries used the same medium to teach about family history.
Throughout the day, missionaries encouraged people to write the name of the country their family was from in the chalk tree while they explained how visitors could learn more about family trees on familysearch.org.
