Collections Deposited in the Genealogy Library Center, Inc.

Since May of 2008, many collections have been deposited in the Genealogy Library Center, Inc. for preservation and eventual public access.  It is time to update my list of records.

I use these collections, all the time, to find ancestors for my clients.  And I am amazed at the contents these collections afford me.  Watch my KY Blog for examples of the Kentucky state-wide census card index sent to me.  Entries not found in other indexes that change lineages!

During the height of the winter months in Tremonton UT, there is much snow and ice–especially on the nearby mountain roads.  So volunteers who come to process these materials take a vacation.  I also travel alot during these months, speaking at conferences and seminars and doing field research in libraries, archives, and local cemeteries.

We’ll be back at work during the summer.  In the air-conditioning!  Now go figure!  At least the roads and sidewalks will be clear of ice.

PS  My new laptop is a challenge for me.  Since I don’t use it every day, keeping the virus protection active and the battery charged requires notes to myself.  I intend to master it, with the help of Kathryn my webmaster.  Keep your fingers crossed!
