Our Family “in” History

We hope to understand not merely the Pratt family history (the names and dates of our ancestors), but the Pratt family “in” history. To help us understand and appreciate our heritage, we need to see our Pratt ancestors as real people, with struggles and triumphs of their own. In order to make this a reality, each child and grandchild of Jared Pratt has their own page, serving as a repository of information, photos and histories. If you would like to order the DVDs with the 350+ high-quality photographs that we have added, fill out this form.

These histories include discourses, letters, journals, newspaper articles, etc. by or about the Pratt brothers and their children! Explore what we have on your ancestor by choosing one of the brothers below to find a list of his spouses and children.


We have recently found more information about Mary or Polly Pratt.   She is the daughter of Jared Pratt and his first wife, Mary or Polly Carpenter, and a half sister of the five Pratt brothers..

Would you like to help in this great effort? We have many, many documents that need to be transcribed so that we can add that information to the website for all of the family members to enjoy. For more information about volunteering, see our Volunteer section.
