Snow, recently retired/released as the Historian and Recorder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gave a presentation on his ancestor, Erastus Snow.
Erastus Snow (November 9, 1818 – May 27, 1888) was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1849 until his death.
