Today is

WELCOME! My name is Kathleen Judkins-Gerard and I am the state adminstrator for Utah's Genealogy Project.

Lost Souls Genealogy is a group that was created for and dedicated to helping with your family history research for beginners and advanced researchers. Come on in and talk about the ups and downs of your own research. We hope to provide advice, tips, links, discussion, reviews, ideas and look-ups. We will be building databases and links as we learn and exchange information. Please join us in building our site by sending in and adding your own information. You may communicate completely by email. Though we do recommend that you periodically visit the site to see photos, data, links and files that are added.
Come on in grab a glass of tea or cup of coffee and browse our sites and talk with us for a while. Make some new friends and hopefully we can break down a wall or two as we go.
