Spring Snow at the Family History Library
We are still seeing snow fall on the mountains and only a few short weeks ago, I was walking through deep snow to go to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. The flowers had all bloomed and were covered in about eight inches of snow. It was a ...

Petrified Wood
I have been around chunks of petrified wood almost all my life. I commonly have had a piece or two or more sitting in my front yard. Petrified wood is commonly found throughout the Colorado Plateau and even today. Here are the current regulations from the U...

Figuring out the path
Figuring out where to go when walking around in sandstone maze can be an extraordinary challenge. There do not seem to be any discernible pathways through the maze of rock. One of the rules of walking in an area like this is simple. It is much easier to go ...

... Some of that is disclosed in the SEC filings. It will certainly be part of due diligence for any potential buyer.

Honeycomb Cliff
This is the dramatically honeycombed cliff I have ever seen. In fact, this whole canyon was a vast wonderland of rock formations. The canyon is way off the main roads, but the road, at this point at least, is paved. But the road begins in a remote small tow...

Getting Started with Indexing from FamilySearch
FamilySearch has just released a cute new video about getting started with Indexing. We need to be reminded about how valuable Indexing is to the entire genealogical community.

The Final Fall
I always notice balanced rocks. In the Southwest, they are not that uncommon. But it is seldom that we see one that this close to becoming unbalanced. I am not quite sure what is keeping this massive rock suspended and balanced on the side of base rock. It ...

Form and Substance
I have a never ending fascination with the formations of the Colorado Plateau. Even in areas that seem almost empty with views that stretch vast distances, you can go over a hill or around a bend in the road and see marvelous wonders carved by wind, water a...

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.
