Merry Christmas from my house to yours. This is a tree along the lane coming into my house; we don’t have much snow yet but I’m sure it is coming. I really don’t mind! I live in Spokane! I wish for you that all your luggage arrived home with you; that all your notes and […]

Salt Lake Christmas Tour……. post-2011 tour peek!

Despite all the hullaballo with RootsTech that Leland had to deal with, the 27th annual Salt Lake Christmas Tour was a huge and resounding success! First off, there was no snow and the days were sunny and bright (but cold). Of the 94 people attending most found new ancestors and certainly they found new cousins […]

We don’t usually think of blue as a Christmas or holiday color and […]

Salt Lake Christmas Tour Week Peek……….Next!

“Oh the weather outside is getting frightful…..” Pre-Halloween SNOW in New Jersey and the Northeast? And SNOW in Texas when they are barely over their run of 100+ degree days?

Salt Lake Christmas Tour Week Peek #45

Some genealogies are rather plain, sturdy and strong, but rather ordinary. Some genealogies are really rather crazy, full of “really?” stories. Some genealogies are rather traditional, a “Heinz 57 American,” type of tree. Some genealogies have ancestors from mostly one place, one country.

Salt Lake Christmas Tour Week Peek #43

Just think; in a few days we’ll come down to breakfast with Thomas MacEntee and Mother Hen. Then we’ll walk out the back door (snow? maybe….usually not), coats on and “stuff” in hand. And then we scurry into the library and it feels like coming home, doesn’t it? How many days or weeks have you […]

How many days left until our annual December rendezvous in Salt Lake??? Less than 70, according to Leland’s blog! I know our principle speaker/teacher/presenter Thomas MacEntee is getting prepared and I surely hope you are too. If you came just to learn from him, it would be a totally worthwhile week for you.
