Larrry Santa

This is our very own Christmas Tour Santa, Larry from Iowa. And I assure you that he is jolly and smiling most of the time! Must have caught him in a no-cookie moment……. but we love our Santa Larry!

This is our Number One Christmas Elf on the tour, Linda Sue from Arizona. I love her Two-Pepsi-Breakfast beverages!

Florida Three

These are Barbara, Jan and Joanne from Florida. Even after several years of coming to research, they still find new ancestors and new information.

I show you these photos because a picture is worth 1000 words and the Salt Lake Christmas Tour “family” is a good bunch of fun folks with which to spend a week! No doubt about it.

But this is the second big reason why we come on the Christmas tour……….. we have a mostly empty library all to ourselves for hours and hours and hours……… without all the day-to-day To-Do pressures, we can look at microfilm until our eyeballs are spinning!

Here’s a great quote from author Arthur C. Clarke:  When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost always right. When he states something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

How does this apply to genealogy?  When you have a really-tough-deadend-brickwall problem in your family history that you think is impossible to solve you are very probably wrong.  Come on the Salt Lake Christmas Tour and let our army of experts and helpers have a go at breaking your problem.
