Finally, Heading West - Family History Library, Here We Come !!!

THE YOU GO GENEALOGY GIRLS, aren't we beautiful?

We are finally getting on the road to head on west towards Salt Lake City. We are so EXCITED to get there and start finding all the precious family information. Our bags are repacked and ready to leave Cheyenne, Wyoming tomorrow(Sunday) on the next leg of our trip. The jelly beans and cookies are in the bag and the car is stuffed full to the brim. We discovered that "bring your trees" did not mean real trees so we left the bucket of cherry tree starts at my son's house in Cheyenne, darn it anyway, now we have to make our own "family" trees when we get to Salt Lake City!

Today we met our cousin for the first time who lives in Cheyenne. She works and volunteers at the Laramie County Library in the genealogy department. They have a great facility and she showed us all their collection and even the behind the scenes works of their department. What a wonderful time we had. She gave us that great personal tour of their facility and we had lunch together. We spent time catching up on old family tales and comparing notes on all the cemeteries we have searched out. From the library we also gleaned some new information for our family files. What an awesome day and good start to our research trip west. Thanks Sharon!
