Director's Message


Now is a good time to clean up your PAF database.  In the fall we will have the opportunity to transfer our PAF data into New FamilySearch.  In order to import into PAF you will need additional software.  PAF will be available in our center.  We will also have LEGACY 7.0 and Ancestral Quest in the Family History Center.  If you are thinking about buying any new software programs check to make sure they will be compatible with New FamilySearch.

To check on the rollout status for your stake for New FamilySearch go to https://consultant.familysearch.org/consultant/home.do.   Click on Utah Idaho updates (right side of screen), click on "Updates" tab and then click on the name of your temple district.  If you are in the rollout phase there will be dates showing when your stake will be on. 

Other Resources Available in the Center

  • Microfilms can be ordered from the Family History Library for use in the Center
  • Microfiche can be ordered from the Family History Library for use in the Center

We have recently purchased two new books for our FHC.

  • The Handybook for Genealogists" Edition 10, by Everton
  • Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shoen Mills

Family History Moments

The Saints living in Nauvoo had an opportunity to receive their own endowments in the Nauvoo Temple which strengthened not only their testimonies but gave them the faith and courage they needed to face the trials of their journey to the Salt Lake Valley.  Along the "Trail of Hope" (Parley Street) in Nauvoo where the wagons lined up as they began their journey across the Mississippi River are plaques on which are engraved some of their feelngs about their exodus.  Some of those statements follow:

"How well I remember what a hard time (father) had breaking in the animals to draw the wagon.  There were six cows and two oxen.  The oxen were well broken and quite sedate.  But the cows were wild and unruly...while Father was breaking the cattle, Mother was praying...many nights when we were in bed asleep...she would go out into the orchard...and there pour out her soul in prayer, asking the Lord to open the way for us to go with the Saints."    Margaret Judd Clawson

"The fall of 1845 found Nauvoo, as it were, one vast mechanic shop, as nearly every family was engaged in making wagons.  Our parlor was used as a paint shop in which to paint wagons."  Bathsheba W. Smith

"We hurried to pack some food, cooking utensils, clothing and bedding, which was afterward unpacked and strewn over the ground by the mob as they searched for fire-arms.  Mother had some bread already in the kettles to bake.  Of course she did not have time to bake so she hung it on the reach of our wagon and cooked it after we crossed the Mississippi River."  Mary Field Garner "

...here we all halted and took a farewell view of our delightful city...We also beheld the magnificent temple rearing its lofty tower toward the heavens...My heart did swell within me."  Newell Knight

"We had nothing to sweeten anything until the Lord sent honey dew, which we gathered from bushes until we get all the sweets we wanted.  I also boiled maple juice and got cakes of maple sugar."  Jane Johnston

"Early in February, multitudes of the people commenced to cross the Mississippi, and from their encampments in the forest of Iowa.  In regard to the terrible sufferings that followed, the terrible snow storms and rains that continued from February until May, causing such floods and mire distress and suffering and consequent sickness, as perhaps has never before been known to the lot of man."  Erastus Snow

We too, in these troubled times, can draw strength, faith and courage from the temple.
