Important Announcement!

All good things must come to an end.  This fall, this website will no longer be available.  Volunteering at Woodmere since November 2003 and helping countless family researchers in their quest for ancestral information, the time has come to move on.   Life changes which means prioritizing one's time and what it takes to fill it.  I still make my yearly trek to Salt Lake City to do family research.  Genealogy is still my number one hobby so you may see me wandering the grounds at Woodmere.  If you do, please stop and say hello.   


I am also suspending speaking engagements (except for what is listed) and tours for private organizations.  The only tour I will give this year will be on June 27, 2020 (originally it was scheduled for this date, changed to September because of the coronavirus, and now it is back to June 27, 2020) and this is guaranteed to be a fun time.  If you have been on one of my tours that includes a box lunch, handouts, books, and prizes, you know what to expect.  So check out the registration form to the right.  Click on "View Full Listing" under any of the events listed and you will find the registration form.   The information that took four-and-a-half years to create a database will still be available to me so you can still contact me but only through my email address.  It is with a tearful farewell that this comes to an end.   I wish you continued success in your family research and am so grateful I have been able to help countless folks find answers to those family mysteries.  Thank you for your kind words you have shared.  My heart overflows for your gratitude, knowing that the time involved in this effort has been appreciated.
