Michael Kennedy will be the Keynote Speaker at the Pahvant Valley Family History Conference
on October 15, 2016 in Delta, Utah.

Mike joined the church at age 18 and is the first of Joseph and Emma’s descendants to hold the Melchizedek Priesthood in the offices of Elder, Seventy and High Priest.  He is the first descendant of the Prophets family to receive his endowments.

He is the President and Executive Director of the Joseph Smith Jr. Family Organization and the Joseph Smith Jr and Emma Hale Smith Historical Society created 1985 & 2006 respectively.   He was the Executive Producer of the movie released in theaters throughout the country, “Emma Smith, My Story.  In addition, he has produced the following films:  “The Times and Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith,  “Children of Joseph” and “Discovering Emma.”  Mike works in the Information Technology field and is a graduate of BYU.  He currently works with FamilySearch helping with the development of their technology and formerly the CTO of Propay (an online credit card processing and merchant service company), he has served 4 years as President of the Salt Lake City Chapter of InfraGard, which collaborates with the FBI in increasing the security of the United States critical infrastructures.

 He and his wife Darcy live in Alpine and have been married for over 42 years and have 6 children and 19 grandchildren. Darcy was born and raised in Nevada and works in the medical field. The missionaries found her at the age of 17 and became the only member of her family to join the church at that time.  She servers on the board of the Joseph Smith Jr. and Emma Hale Smith Historical Society.  She has co-authored the book “The Emma Smith We Know” and she calls her moment in the movie “Emma Smith My Story” her “fifteen seconds of fame.”
