Salt Lake City Successes: 2010 Edition

Posted by:

Lamb’s Grill was the site of the traditional wrap-up dinner of the Tenth Annual Salt Lake City Research Tour. Most of the thirty three attendees at this year’s trip joined in the celebration of a successful week at the Family History Library. Here are a few of the accomplishments reported.

Laura Lee Johnson Karp went back two more generation with her German GANSERT and VETER lines.
Jim Sorenson had nothing but praise for the library’s collection and had success with Swedish church records.
Gary Willcuts reported he is on the “right track” tracing his MIDDLETON line from Los Angeles back to Scotland.

Bill O’Neil located a photograph of ancestor Jacob Frederick and learned of the work of a cousin, Arlene Gable, at Frederick Family Tree.
Pamela Wardall Lewis was tickled to find her own immigration record (and that of her mother and brother) on Find My Past.

Alison Kern Shedd found SEIGLE estate records in Porter County, Indiana.
Cynthia Peterson Gorman located an lithographic image of Nathanial Templeton being burned at the stake after capture by Indians at the Battle of Sandusky Plains.
Gabrielle Kojder put all the pieces of the puzzle together and located her Slovenian village.

Cathy Paris made progress with research of her ancestors in Scotland, particularly with Henry  WEBSTER.
This was Carol Levison Glesser’s first trip to Salt Lake and she had considerable beginner’s luck going back five generations with her LEVISON, MAXWELL and MASON families.
Thanks, Jane and Nancy, for another great week in Salt Lake City!

    Looks like everyone had a great time. Kathryn, you need to get *in* some of the pictures, not just take them! 🙂

    I like the format of this report and lots of great photos. Everyone looks very happy.

    also noticed that one of the attendees has a Veter line – my paternal grandmother was a Vetter.
