Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r The Payson Family History Center will sponsor Payson’s first Family Discovery Day on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Mount Nebo Stake Center, 608 W. 1400 South. Those attending will learn how to begin or enhance their family history research from experienced experts and presenters.

The day will begin at 9 a.m. with keynote speakers President William Sonne and his wife Sister Elizabeth Sonne, temple president and matron of the Payson Temple.rDuring the next three hours, nine classes will be offered providing various levels of family history instruction for adults and youth. Attendees will be able to choose three classes. There is no need to sign up for the classes; they will be offered on a first come, first served basis, but there should be plenty of room for all who attend. Advance registration is not required, but it is recommended so an approximate number of those attending can be obtained. Register on the Payson Utah Family History Center website at https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Payson_Utah_Family_History_Center (Google “Payson Family History Center” and click “Sign Up Here”). Those who register will receive email reminders and information about the Discovery Day. The website also shows a detailed list of classes. Light snacks will be provided during the day.

Family Discovery Day will provide a unique opportunity to hear from family history experts including Leland Moon, who developed the Sand Box and other Family Tree curriculum that FamilySearch uses on its website. He will be teaching “Using the Family Tree Apps” and “Using Photo, Documents, Stories and Audio.” Barbara Moon will teach “Merging and Correcting Relationships” and “Clearing Names for Temple Ordinances.” Robert Kehrer, a RootsTech presenter, will teach about Record Hints in FamilySearch. Laryn Brown will talk about Ancestry.com. Van Celaya will teach “Fast, Accurate Research,” Bret Petersen will discuss census records and Rose Nyman and Susan Schirmer will offer “Teaching Your Family Their Family History” with ideas for games and projects. Amy Staheli and Kimberly Marvin, youth from the Payson South Stake, will be teaching a class about family history for youth. We have a special speaker, Brandon Baird from Family Search, who will be prepared to teach family history in various subjects for all Spanish-speaking attendees that want to start to learn more about family history.
