I was so excited that Joshua was coming out to RootsTech! We had gotten a phone call from him asking to meet up with us on Thursday, February 28th and Friday, March 1st.  We see each other Sunday at Church. I am so glad the bishop mentioned to him that he could meet up with us out there. 

He got in Thursday night and met us at Fat Jack's Burger Emporium after 9:00 pm.  We had just come from 

a meeting. He was so excited and ready to learn. We planned to met the next morning at the Family History Library. 

Joshua worked upstairs on the third floor with a Sister who reviewed with him adding people, person pages, searching from the person page to find ancestors, attaching records to the Family Tree, and much more. She reviewed Contact Us within FamilySearch.org where he could find help:
