WVR booth at St. George, Utah Genealogy Fair

“I had a lady stop by the booth. She said that there was a great uncle that they had lost track of and had no genealogy information on him.

She had tried to find any record of his existence without success. She was overwhelmed when I did a search for him in our global search and found a completely filled out family group sheet in the Everton Family Group Sheet collection on her great uncle including his children that she never new existed.

I emailed the links to those Family Group sheets to her.”
