I am not sure when I became aware that fancy tulips existed. They certainly break out of the common mould of what we think about when we think about tulips. They are really called Fancy Frills Fringed Tulips. One of the things we learned when we moved here ...

Spring Pansies
Pansies, as I learned over the Winter, are planted in the coldest part of the year. They may find themselves buried in snow, but they seem to survive the cold and look healthy and happy in the Spring. I always thought pansies were purple, but there seem to ...

The Famous Salt Lake Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah
I spent some time walking around Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah . It was a cloudy and blustery day and a little on the cool side. My goal was to take photos of the beautiful flowers but despite the crowds, I was able to capture a lovely photo of the ...

Rugged Country
As I look back on all of the experience that I've had in traveling around Arizona and Utah, the one fact that stands out most prominently is that the country is very rugged. Of course there are wide valleys, but the valleys all seem to end abruptly been ver...

Story
Introduction
I have more than thirty years' experience in law, computers and over thirty years experience as a research genealogist. I presently serve as a volunteer at the Brigham Young University Family History Library in Provo, Utah where I alternate between helping patrons and teaching classes. I am most interested in the technological aspects of genealogical research because of my strong technology background. My own family were pioneers who settled in Utah and Arizona in the 1800s. My family dates back to the Mayflower and with the exception of two family lines who came from Denmark, my family all came from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
