Join Us: Learn About Genealogy, And Become A Source Friday Night

Utah Public Radio wants to know "Who do You think You are?" -- a radio version of the popular television series where you search for family connections. From beginning to end, we want to know why your family history matters, how you search for your roots, and what you have learned from your family tree. Share your stories with us by becoming a source.

We will also have a booth at the genealogy event at the Logan Tabernacle Friday night. Three local “celebrities” will trace their ancestral roots at 7:00 p.m. With the help of expert genealogists, Sister Marilyn of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, the Rev. Dr. Stephen Sturgeon, Vicar of St. John’s Episcopal Church, and Rev. Derek Forbes, Associate Pastor of the Logan First Presbyterian Church, will become better acquainted with their ancestors, and they have invited us to the event.
