Living Descendant of Joseph Smith Shares His Journey of Finding the True Church

Michael Kennedy is the 3rd great-grandson of Joseph Smith and Emma Hale and has been the President of the Joseph Smith Jr. family organization since 1985. He has a passion for gathering the posterity of Joseph and Emma Smith.

He has recorded various testimonies of descendants of the prophet Joseph Smith over the years and recently uploaded an interview with another descendant of Joseph Smith, Kenneth Smith.

Kenneth Smith’s 2nd great grandfather was the Prophet, Joseph Smith. In this video, he shares his stories of coming to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and that he did, in fact, translate the gold plates. Kenneth was not raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

This video was recorded on location in Nauvoo, Illinois.
