Almost Snow Bound
This is what the snow looked like with our house after one day of snow. Today, it has been snowing all day and it is even deeper. As one of my grandchildren asked me yesterday, "How do I like my first real winter in Utah?" I said, "Fine, thank you. I like s...

Mesa FamilySearch Library plans two conferences
I guess the assessment of the Mesa FamilySearch Library as possibly mostly dead was premature. Not only have they been operating out of the old, much smaller building just west of the Mesa, Arizona Temple, but they have also held a very successful conferenc...

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.
