Saving Money


It has been suggested that some family members may prefer to receive the Newsletter only by the internet. I have been sending an e-mail with a link to those that have given me their e-mail address, but I also have been sending everyone a paper copy.


If you would like to only receive the notice and link to the Newsletter by e-mail, then send me an e-mail stating this and I will put you on an e-mail only list for the Newsletter. This will mean that you will need to inform me when your e-mail address changes or you could be lost. My e-mail address is: AndyL@Cazier.net

 Friday Night



 We gathered in the Ogden City Park, in North Ogden, Utah. Approximately 65 to 70 in attendance.

The park was a large area with grass and trees with a big toy for kids to play on. It was warm, shirt sleeve weather and every one had a light supper.


 Larry Galli Opened with prayer.


 Marilyn Crezee the host welcomed everyone and gave an outline for the night.

 Cazier Historical Self Tour, Ogden


 Marilyn Crezee gave information and  maps for the individual tours. She also gave some information on where we could eat later.

With all the records that needed to be preserved Gail decided to scan the pages so we all could have them if we needed.


Gail scanned 831 pages from Nattie’s records and 910 of Fern’s records. The pages consist of  family sheets, photographs, stories, history's, wills, birth and death certificates and more. They fit on two CD ROMs that can be obtained from Gail. Gail showed how to use the CDs and showed a small example of what was on them.


Gail mentioned the “History of Benjamin Jr.” by Louise Radford.


There is a request to do more research on the Pleasant Drake line and the Caziers in Virginia. Some are willing to donate money to for that cause. As part of this there was conversation on hiring a professional
