It has been more than three years ago that access to Ancestry.com was removed from family history centers.  Removed might nit be the correct wording since some of the resources of the site continued to be available, but it felt as though it was being removed.  Many of the collections on Ancestry were no long available, including most of the United States census and the British census.  Shortly thereafter FamilySearch worked to replace at least some of the resources by indexing the 1910 census and purchasing subscriptions to HeritageQuest online and FindMyPast, but the loss of Ancestry continued to leave a hole. That hole has now been filled as nearly all of the Ancestry.com records can now be accessed for free from the Morgan family history center.

Trojans  started baseball in 1948 !  
This season will be  57 season for Trojan  baseball!
They hold  six  region championships  in baseball: 1951, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1969, 2009!  
Their only state  baseball  championship was sixty years ago! They record was   22 wins 0 losses!  
Remember who they played when  they won  that game?  The answer was South Sevier!  Morgan ranks 43rd in all time wins for baseball, according to the Utah High School Activities Association
Their  first baseball  game will be at Roy High School on March 7  at 3:30 p.m.
What was Roy’s record last season  in baseball ?   The Royals record was 11 wins 12 losses and 1 tie! Doug Johnston, the editor of The Morgan County News went to Roy High but likes Morgan more!

If meta data is not a term you have heard you are probably not alone.  It is a concept, however, that you will almost certainly have benefitted from if you have done any significant amount of genealogical work.  Meta data, simply put, is data about data.  The most common application of meta data in family history is indexed records of digital images.

Compaction
Healthy roots are the foundation for vigorous, lush plant growth.  Roots need a balanced supply of air, water and nutrients to thrive.  Compaction reduces the volume of pore space in the soil, limiting air exchange, water intake and ultimately roots growth.  Its symptoms include weak, slow-growing plants and thin turf stands.  Compaction is more of a problem on heavy clay soils than light sandy soils.
