Members go to Salt Lake City

Ready for dinner at the Olive Garden
 In May 2011, 12 society members traveled to Salt Lake City's Family History Library to spend a week researching family history.  The arrangements were made by Jim and Marj, which they do every year in May.  Here we are gathered to walk to dinner at Olive Garden, a few blocks away,  in the rain. Luckily, the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel's van offered a ride back after dinner as by then it was raining harder than before.

Here Edie is finding films that she has located on the library's catalog.

Patsy browses the Internet for sites relating to her current research project. They are probably Swedish record sites, don't you think?

Edie gets help from the expert at the desk.
