Yesterday, while reading a post from the NGS blog, I noticed a link to a Utah photo collection that is new to me.  It’s the Salt Lake Tribune Negative Collection.  I clicked on over to check it out and discovered this cool photo of my great grandfather.

This photo was taken 1 February 1957.  These fellas were somehow connected to the Utah State Livestock Association.  My great grandpa, Rulon Powell Peterson, is on the right, holding his hat and wearing glasses.  He was a very successful cattle rancher.  The other two men are named as John E Booth and Clemm Schramm, but I don’t know which one is which.

I did a little perusing of the collection and didn’t find anything else related to my family.  The collection is hosted by Utah State History.  They have a few other collections.  If you have any Utah family, you may want to check it out.

And once again, I am so thankful that I quickly read a post listing various online collections.  You just never know what you might find in some obscure online collection.

 

Happy Thursday, I hope you make a surprisingly delightful genealogy discovery today!

  1. Great find! I love the hats. Real cowboys! 🙂

  2. Wow! This is such a cool find! 🙂

  3. That is just the coolest thing! Lucky (and resourceful) you finding this great photo!!!

  4. What a great find! I love the expression on the standing guy … “hm, their hats really are better than mine.”

  5. It is the random clicks like this one that turn out so well. It is really something how one can search for a long time with a clear goal in mind and hit a brick wall. Then soething like this happens. Do you plan on ordering a copy of the photo?
