FamilySearch Family Tree is a Gift, Let's Not Misuse It
I have just gone through another round of working through issues caused by people indiscriminately adding names to the FamilySearch.org Family Tree with no concern for accuracy or any sense of propriety. This type of issue usually arises with someone's stat...

The Desert
I was watching a movie and the characters started talking about the desert. They said that deserts were dry, hot and had a lot of sand. Well, I am here to tell you that dry is the only thing deserts have in common. This desert in Central Utah was cold and r...

People Not in the Family Tree!!
Why are individuals either in or not in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree? This may seem like an almost constant topic, but the question does come up continually and I find it necessary to repeat how the names get into the Family Tree program. Where did the ...

Wisteria Blooms in Spring
For many years, we had a large wisteria vine in front of our house in Mesa, Arizona. When we moved, I missed the wisteria. I just spotted a huge vine in a house in our neighborhood and it brought back all the memories of our old home in Mesa. These are such...

The wisteria here is out and hanging over the trees all over the place.

The Distance in Perspective
This almost surreal landscape is part of 69 mile loop. You can barely see part of the road at the bottom of the photo and yes, it really is that steep. We were fascinated by the rock on the top of the prominently striped hill in the mid-distance. The little...

Wildfire
The prolonged drought in Utah is taking its toll on the landscape. A number of fires have already started with some loss of property. We passed by this fire while driving in Central Utah this past weekend. There were no fire fighters or anyone else present ...

Antique Horse Drawn Sickle Mower
This is an antique horse drawn sickle mower. It is possibly a McCormick Deering but it could also be an International Harvester #9. Both appear similar to the one I photographed at the Capital Reef National Park. The Park was once a working ranch and fruit ...

Temples of the Sun and Moon
Our recent visit to Capital Reef National Park was an absolutely stunning place. We could not stop saying "wow" at almost every turn in the road. This is Cathedral Valley at the north end of the 100 mile long Park. It is located at the end of a very long di...

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.
