What did our great great great grandparents care about?  In many ways this was the focus of the talk by Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at RootsTech.

Many people who become involved in family history research look at what other people have already completed on their common lines and then begin research where the first blank appears. There is a reason that Grandma or Aunt Clara stopped where they did. It was hard research!

Family history is really exciting for those who do it. Those who have not been bitten by the bug may feel overwhelmed or disinterested. I love helping individuals begin their family history and always maintain that you can research like a professional even if you are not one. Simply learn to do it right the first time and fix it right for future generations, and you will have some great (fun and interesting) training material for them when they are ready to begin.

Five generation pictures are naturally hard to come by, but this five generation shot has a particularly unique story behind it.

I was quite disappointed in how some of our county members acted and behaved due to Leeway voting on both sides of this issue. I am aware of several instances where members were out of hand, yelling, swearing, and name calling because someone didn’t agree with them. There were also a number of cases of sign stealing. Both of these issues have to do with our first amendment rights. If we expect our own freedom of speech we must allow and respect that of others even if we don’t agree. We can talk about these things civilly like the adults we should be. Taking of signs is also an infringement on this amendment. Another problem we encounter is accusing people without proof for such deeds. We have never been and should never be a “guilty until proven innocent” society. If we continue to have this type of attitude in a number of years we will not have a republic because some won’t tolerate the views of others.

Contrary to what their name infers, the American black bear is not always black.  Coat colors can vary from black to brown,  or even cinnamon or blond, but they always have a brownish muzzle.

The holiday season is in full swing.  This time of year always seems like a good time to reflect on those things for which we are grateful.  The list often includes family, friends, employment, and freedom.  I would like to add to that list; I am grateful for the staff at the Utah Driver License Division.

As I contemplate my six children and 12 grandchildren, I wonder at times what would happen if my wife and I were thrust into the role of raising one or more of our grandchildren. In a perfect world, parents raise their children in their own homes and grandparents have the privilege and joy of spoiling their grandchildren—and then sending them back home to their parents.  Well, it’s not a perfect world that we live in, and more and more grandparents find themselves in the position of part-time, temporary, full-time, or permanent primary caregivers and/or guardians for their grandchildren.

After two high-profile domestic violence cases have gripped the Morgan community in the past year, efforts to protect victims in abusive relationships are becoming increasingly important.

Virtually all of us are immigrants.  Our ancestors may have come across on the Mayflower, or in one of the subsequent waves of immigration.  We may have ancestors from Germany, England, Wales, Scotland, Italy, Africa, China, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, or any one of a hundred other countries that have made up the wonderful melting pot that has formed the United States.  We are a nation of immigrants.

The following is data from a national level regarding Bullying:  15-20% of all students are victimized by bullies at some point in their career; almost one in three are involved in bullying, either as a bully or victim; 10% of students are afraid during much of the school day; 160,000 children miss school every day in the USA for fear of being bullied; and about 20% of students have reported being victimized by online bullying. The following is information according to what I call the National Definition of Bullying that includes the following elements: stronger against a more vulnerable child; intentional and happens more than once; serious in nature; in short bullying is a one-sided unfair match that happens more than once and has attendant physical, emotional or psychological harm.
