This week I attended the annual conference of the American Library Association (ALA) in Chicago. It was such a great experience! It is the largest conference for libraries of all kinds in the United States. I learned a lot about today’s librarianship, including lots of cool tidbits about how libraries are helping genealogists!

I just got back from my short trip to Salt Lake City! It was all around a successful trip! We celebrated our first anniversary, I was at the Family History Library almost every day, and my husband learned a lot at his workshop! We also fit in some relaxation and hiking on our day off. This was my first trip out west, and now I’m eager to travel more!
Research at the Family History Library revealed a lot about my genealogy, and I’m still going through the records that I found! Coming soon… a post about the 100-year mystery that I solved! In the meantime, here are a few photos from the trip!
Soon I’ll be traveling to Salt Lake City for a much-needed getaway! My husband and I are combining work and leisure for this vacation. During the day, he will be attending a Biology workshop and I’ll be free to spend my time at the Family History Library! I’m preparing for the research trip by following some advice given by Amy Johnson Crow. Her advice includes: have a plan, have a backup plan, check the catalog before you go, and more. (Update: Diana and Nicole at The Family Locket also give some great advice about visiting the Family History Library! I can’t believe that I missed it before.)
