Events on Friday September 4, 2009

One of the brochures at the LDS FamilySearch Center asks: Who do you think you are? It quickly suggests that you are more than you think. I picked up this handout yesterday while doing a walk about of the Family History Library, Church Museum, Temple Square, Joseph Smith Memorial Building and Conference Center. I have made arrangements for those of us wishing to learn a little more about using the LDS Church resources for our family research and a group tour of the LDS Conference Center.
This was the first time I have taken a tour of the whole center, which included the roof- well worth the 45-60 minutes it took. Of course I wish I could have you all come in right now as Spring has so much charm here. So will September!
Legacy, a 55 minute film that "depicts the joys, sacrifices, hopes and trials of early Latter-day Saints" from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Great Basin is shown in the North Visitors Center on Temple Square at various times through evening. I have not seen this film but hear good reports. The LDS Church Museum has an incredible installation about the Tabernacle especially related to the restoration project that was recently completed. At the Conference Center, through October is the 8th International Art Competition; very satisfying. All these venues have much to reflect on the Kirkham heritage and legacy. A few minutes walk will also get you to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum, the new Church History Library and other downtown Salt Lake City sights and transportation.
Lets take some time to become acquainted before the big event Saturday in Lehi. Soon I will need to know how many to look for, when and where. But just now I want you to figure out your travel plans for getting here!
