      My wife and I just returned from Salt Lake City, 3 days skiing and 3 days
      researching. Big time fun!

      Although our research findings do not directly relate to BT research,
      perhaps someone will be emboldened to make the trip based on our experience.
      Here are the genealogical highlights:

      1. Found primary source material for two of our family lines--the first Old
      World sources we have discovered for these families. They have a machine
      that scans microfilm images onto a thumb drive, for free.

      a. Birth record for Godfrey Raish, born 1784 in Fellback, Wurtenburg (on
      microfilm)
      b. Several microfilm records for Stephanie Gaidosch, born 1881 in Radautz,
      Bukowina, Austria (now Romania): Confirmation class record, and the
      Familienbuch, a summary of vital records which included parents names and
      DOB, siblings names and DOB, house number, etc.

      2. Was able to copy book length genealogies for Barrows and Howland onto my
      thumb drive, again for free.

      3. Consulted with the professional research staff on next steps. It really
      helps to get another perspective. There is a Polish speaking woman who
      helped us write a letter in Polish to the archives.

      4. Passenger list record for Godfrey Raish, Antwerp to Philadelphia on the
      Margaret, August, 1805 (microfilm and book record).

        And some people think a trip to Disneyland is the best kind of
        vacation! HA!
