The LDS Pioneers Category and Sub-Project covers "the migrating Mormon pioneers who traveled from New England States, New York State and other eastern regions in a wagon train migration which began about 1846. This project is about the profiles on WikiTree of these particular Mormon pioneers who eventually settled in the Great Salt Lake plains of Utah. This pioneer era is generally considered to have ended with the 1869 arrival of the transcontinental railroad."[1]

"Denmark supplied more immigrants to Utah in the nineteenth century [1800s] than any other country except Great Britain. Most of these Danes--nearly 17,000--were converts to the LDS Church, heeding an urgent millennialistic call to gather to "Zion."[2]

  2. Jensen, Richard L., Utah History Encyclopedia, Danish Immigration and Life in Utah.[2]" Although there is a Category for "Immigrants to Utah from Denmark," this does not do justice to the sacrifices that these particular Danes made to forge the wealthiest of the 50 United States of America out of the Great Southwestern Desert: Utah. According to Rich States Poor States, Utah's "Overall Rank" has been 1st Place every year, from 2008 to 2019.<ref>ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council), The Rich States, Poor States: ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitiveness Index, "Rich States Poor States"[https://www.richstatespoorstates.org/states/UT/]</li></ol></ref>
