The Accuracy of a Family Tree
It is hard to find an analogy for the classic family tree diagram. It is organic like a real tree growing outside my window, but this analogy is faulty because the representation is an artificial construct. The use of the term "family tree" reflects more of...

A Real Mirror in the Lake
A small boy came up the lake with his mother and said, "What happened to the water?" He could not see the surface of the water and assumed it was all gone. I had about the same reaction to this series of amazing images. Conditions have to be just right, wit...

Once in a Blue Moon
July 31, 2015 was a Blue Moon night. No, the moon did not change color, it was the second full moon in the same month. This is a photo I took while high in the Uintah Mountains at about 10,400 feet. If you look closely, you can see the outline of a bat that...

Rock Faces
The more I look at this image, the more faces I see. This is a rather interesting rock formation in the northern part of Capital Reef National Park. You will have to travel quite a ways down a dirt road to get here, but the scenery is well worth the trip.

The Monster of the Lake
This was pretty scary. I noticed it surfacing about 30 yards away and quickly got my camera to take one image before it sank once again beneath the calm surface of the water. Actually, it just sat there and I took my time composing the photo. It is impossib...

Reflections on Bald Mountain
This photo was taken from the shore of Moosehorn Lake in the high Uintah Mountains of northeastern Utah. I am not quite sure why this particular mountain is called Bald Mountain since all of the mountains in the area look pretty much the same. The summit of...

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.
