SLC Trip Day #6: The Rev. Dr. John Inglis

I went into my second to last day with a long list of things to hunt down and copy. But I was very prepared—mostly I’d been through indexes so I had mapped out where in the original documents I needed to go. 355 more words

SLC Trip Day #5: Our Day of Rest

I would strongly encourage anyone taking a trip to the Family History Library to travel midweek to midweek through the weekend so that you can use Sunday—when the Library is closed—to reassess and plan for whatever remaining days you have. 239 more words

SLC Trip Day #4: More Bradley County, Arkansas

On Saturday, when the library is only open 9-5, I continued working my way through the Bradley County microfilm—mostly tax records.  What the FHL holds is primarily tax book indexes though a few of the actual books were filmed including 1890 so while the indexes indicate that relatives owned enough to be taxed the 1890 book tells you what they owned and owed as well as gives you a fair idea of their neighbors. 180 more words

SLC Trip Day #3: All Bradley County… all day!

So it is possible to research from 8 am to 9 pm Tuesday through Friday at the Family History Library. I didn’t manage that any of the days for a variety of reasons (including Red Wings hockey) but I did manage a marathon session from 8 am to 7:30 pm on Day #3 of my Salt Lake City Trip… all focused on my father’s families in Bradley County, Arkansas. 372 more words
