Riverton FamilySearch Library Hosts Free Seminar - Saturday, January 17th, 9-Noon

Don't Let Them Be Forgotten—Honoring Our Ancestors through the Arts

The Riverton FamilySearch Library will host a free seminar on Saturday, January 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. The seminar will help genealogists of all skill levels learn how to:

•    Involve your children, nephews, and nieces in family history.
•    Share your heritage with your family, so they will become interested.
•    Teach your family to gain inspiration from the greatness of their heritage.
•    Teach them of the sacrifices made in the past from which they benefit.
•    Teach them about understanding the past.
•    Teach them that they are a part of the greater whole.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m., guests will hear from Clive Romney, who will present stories, songs, and cowboy (pioneer) poetry that tell how his heart was turned to his fathers through family history research and how his art has turned to our fathers as he has traveled through Utah for the past six years unearthing untold stories of Utah pioneers.
