Once on the plane taking me back home after each of my annual stays in Salt Lake City, I can’t help but feel that if only I could have stayed just one more day… Who am I kidding? It would never be done in just one day! Continue reading

For those of you who have never been to Salt Lake city, this is the library seen from my room. Nope! Cannot be closer than that!

For those of you who have never been to Salt Lake City, this is the library seen from my hotel room. Nope! Cannot be closer than that!

The time I spent at the library yesterday is quite easy to breakdown.

Most of the day was spent working on the Bangle Family. I wanted to see if I could find some new documents and I did! I am very excited about this as I now have the signature of Adam Bangle. Continue reading

Last night at the Marriott Hotel in Salt Lake City was the welcome dinner for the NEHGS research tour group where genealogists intoduce themselves and tell us about their own expertise.

Yesterday, I planned to work on my schedule but you know how it is, I found such remarkable things that I got distracted.

First of all, I mostly worked on the Catholic Church registry for St. Francis of Portage des Sioux in Missouri. I thought I would only find the burial act of Pierre Tourville, who died at age 7, in 1843 but, oh! other surprises were in for me! More details on my blog in the weeks to come.

Then I made some researches for a geneafriend in microfilms for California and it was like the Klondike! You know what? You are crazy about genealogy when you are as excited to find information on other people’s ancestors as if they were your own.

Today will be kind of quiet. My friend Diane’s flight should be coming in soon. Well, guess what we will talk about non-stop until the NEHGS’ group  meeting at 3 pm? The cocktail is at 6 pm and then dinner.

For those who want to know, the hockey game I attented last night was unfortunately a loss for the local team but the Montréal Habs won again!

Work will resume tomorrow morning. I hope to have some good news for you! 🙂
