Pioneer Certificate Program

Please be patient with the processing of applications sent to our PO Box. With the COVID-19 measures in effect, we are experiencing delays with the processing and distribution of physical mail sent to our PO Box.
 
 
Download the application to your computer before you begin filling out the fields. Once you open the form, preferably using Adobe Acrobat or Reader, rename your file using the name of your pioneer. This will ensure you always have a copy of the application available for your next pioneer ancestor. 
 
There are several additional aids in submitting your application on the left side panel, such as application instructions with examples, frequently asked questions, and websites that may help you with documentation and proofs.
