Wilson Bingham Book Progress Report - July 2006

In This Newsletter

1) We had a wonderful get-together on July 1st, 2006 in Payson, Utah to honor Maxine Emelia Mortensen Folster (Wilson), the late wife of the late Ray Wilson. The short memorial service, picnic, and all of her family together again was just what she had said she wanted. The weather was almost like she had put in a special request for it--and who's to say that she didn't! I'm sure we all enjoyed seeing each other again after, for some of us, more than 10 years. Hopefully there will be just as many or more at the June 2007 reunion commemorating the 100th year anniversary of the marriage of Alfred and Emma.

1) Please print a copy of this family group sheet and add your family's information to it, that is if you haven't already done so previously. Then, please send it to me.

2) If you have a special ancestral photo you want included in the larger photo album, please send it to me and I will scan it into my computer, digitally restore it if necessary, and send it (the original and the restored computerized version) back to you. I can also scan negatives and slides for preservation and so you can easily order larger reprints online or from Wal-Mart. Please include any information you know about the photo, such as dates, names, places, and stories.

3) Please send me the email addresses, mailing addresses, and telephone numbers of you and your descendants so that I can begin to include more people in the effort of this book.

Thanks so much to Doug and Allen Wilson for their efforts to honor Maxine and Ray with the memorial and picnic this July.

Thanks also to those who took a moment to preview the manuscript for the book, tentatively titled "A Good Life: The Compiled History of the Wilson-Bingham Family". Lora (Wilson) Westphal, Linda (Wilson) Hill, Danny Holmes-Gull, and Bruce Young have all volunteered to help with various tasks on the manuscript and researching dates, facts, and original documents. Lora also got some really good pictures of Peteetneet school.

Thanks to all for your time and willingness to see this through to publication.
