For one of my college classes I gathered as many histories as I could find and compiled them into an enormous collection. I pulled out many of the stories related to events in church history told from the perspective of his ancestors. This rough & clunky version lacks photographs and historical background, but the essential testimonies of the events are still there. I printed a large fan chart from FamilySearch and numbered each ancestor. Then, as I found stories in assorted places, I copied them into Scrivener with the number and the name of the ancestor in the title. (Easy sorting!)
FamilySearch has a Wiki page dedicated to tracing LDS ancestors. I especially like the Mormon Migration collection (ship passages from Europe & the British Isles) as well as the Pioneer Overland Trail collection (pioneer companies). Both collections include links to newspaper articles and journals for information about the specific voyage or pioneer company. My ancestor may not be highlighted but they were still present for the events that happened on the journeys.
Have you had any luck seeking stories about your ancestors?
