Hello from Salt Lake City

Good morning friends. I am writing to you from Salt Lake City where I am attending the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy presented by the Utah Genealogical Association. The folks from UGA certainly know how to throw a party.

Last night we were welcomed with a light buffet and given our binders for the educational track we had chosen. I am taking American Research and Records with Paula Stuart-Warren. If you haven't read Paula's blog, Paula's Genealogical Eclectica, I recommend that you go over and visit. She has some great tips for your genealogical research. I met Paula last night and am looking forward to learning from her and many other phenomenal instructors this week. 

My schedule includes classroom instruction this morning and then this afternoon we will head over to the Family History Library. This is my Super Bowl. I find it that exciting! Did you see my son role his eyes? 

Look for my updates each day. Salt Lake City is amazing. I was so busy getting my research ready for the trip that I didn't research the physical area. It is shockingly beautiful. SLC sits in a flat bottomed bowl surrounded by mountains. I can see why the Mormon Pioneers decided to settle here. 

Happy Monday!

Scrappy Gen
Let's Remember!


  1. Have fun! Paula's class is the one I wanted to take, but I couldn't swing the child care. I bet it will be a great class.

  2. I'm in tom jones advanced methodology class. I'll keep my eyes open for you.

  3. It sounds amazing, Jen! So glad you are enjoying it. I can't wait to hear all about it.

  4. Can't wait to read about the trip! Glad you are having a great time!
