Salt Lake City Trip
Five members went to Salt Lake City the end of August. The weather was excellent while we were there.  Besides
researching we attended two webinars on beginning DNA.

The webinars are later posted to the Family History Library's  website under Help Learning Center ( top right hand corner of the website).
