I dropped by to check out this library run by church volunteers. Each was helpful in navigating the computer program Family Tree to get my search started. Plan to spend hours if you can. The time flies by so quickly!

If you are in SLC do not miss the chance to go to this family history library. They set me up with an account and two reps spent the day helping me pull microfilm & research my family. So helpful!
