Family History Expo

Here is more info on this Saturday's Family History Expo for all who might be interested. The EXPO is actually Draper's very first community non-denominational COST-FREE Family History event and has been advertised in all our local newspapers, including Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News. This event is sponsored by the Draper Public Library, Draper Chamber of Commerce, the Historical Society of Draper and the LDS Church's five-Stake Family History Center. There will be a complimentary packet of handouts and syllabus from each class given to all attendees. You can attend one class or as many as you would like. Everyone has worked really hard to make this a memorable event to help create an interest in our community for tracing one's ancestry. The online pre-registration ends Wed. May 13th but it would be ok to just show up to the class or classes Saturday also as there may still be seats available. For LDS members, this is a good missionary opportunity to invite neighbors and friends as many people are interested in their ancestry and how to get going on it. Thousands of records are being posted online every day making it much easier to find and link our families. Bonnie Whitley will be teaching a 45 minute class at 1:30 p.m. on jumpstarting your family history and tips for finding your family records using Salt Lake City's Libary Catalog. Classes -10:30- instructors at the Draper Public Library- Ghostbusters: the genealogy genies- how to use the free subscription websites at the library with your library card; 12:30- What's New at and there's a lot new, many changes coming! instructor-trainer at FH Center; 1:30- Tips for using the FH Library Catalog and how to jumpstart + complimentary PAF 5 CD's available to use at home- Bonnie's class; 2:30-Intro to using Personal Ancestral File and tips for organizing your genealogy3:30- Draper Historical Society Library & Museum4:30- Family History Center resouces, including multi-mediaOur CC2. Relief Society blog link to this event leads to the Bingham Creek Library calendar instead of Draper Library. The correct link is :
Then click on DRAPER LIBRARY, then Library Events and Programs, then Calendar and go to Saturday May 16th. The classes are listed there. You click on them and put your name, phone # and email to register.

Young Adults

We welcome many of our young adult sisters home for the summer. We realize some are home temporarily, some are coming and going, and some will stay put until fall! Since it worked so well last summer, we invite mothers of young adult aged daughters to involve them in their visiting teaching once again. You can do one visit or more with your daughter and the rest with your partner. Please discuss this with your VT partners and your daughters to establish what will work best. We will start this month and continue through August. Mothers, we'd ask you and your partners to again act as your daughter's visiting teachers. You know their schedules best and may like the excuse to make an appointment to visit with them!

Spencer and Heather have moved

For those who may not know, Spencer and Heather Richins have moved their sweet family to St. George. Spencer has taken a great job there so the family has headed to a sunnier clime. Fortunately, we'll still get to see them when they come here to visit their families! We're so grateful for their loving examples and influence during their time in the ward. We wish them much happiness in their new venture.

Josiah Douglas is doing well

Josiah Douglas is home now and recuperating well from hip replacement surgery. He and Linda were visiting family in Idaho when he fell from a ladder and broke his hip. He had surgery that very night. They returned home yesterday. Bro. Douglas was told he is in very good physical condition and has the body of a much younger man. He will heal well because of it. Good motivation for us all to stay as physically active as Bro. Douglas! We wish him a speedy recovery.

Tiffany Varney is coming home!

The good news is....Tiffany Varney is coming home on Tuesday, May 12! Here is a request from Patty. They are busy preparing things at home for Tiffany's arrival. They need an aerobic step that someone might be willing to donate or Patty will buy it. It is the perfect height for Tiffany to step on to get into the car. Please call Patty at home if you can help---572-7415. Thank you!
