Photojournalist and celebrity photographer Kimberly Butler had a good idea of what was coming in the “big reveal,” but she was about to be flabbergasted.

It was a Tuesday morning, June 29, and Butler was sitting at a table in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Craig Foster, a research specialist at FamilySearch.
