Bend and Redmond,
Friday, June 26, 1998
The family started to gather at Pioneer
Park in Bend Oregon at 3:30 PM. The
weather was a little on the cool side but
good for being outside. The park is on
the banks of a river with trees and lots
of grass to play on. Turkey was cooked in
handmade outdoor cookers. Salads, rolls
and dessert were enjoyed by all that
attended. About 45 were in attendance at
Information for the next day's activities
was given out. Andy Cazier talked about
the newsletter and how it is produced and
asked if anyone had ideas for improving
it, he would like to have some input.
Saturday, June 27, 1998
On Saturday some of the families enjoyed
some of the local sights, visited the
volcanic park, caves and golfed.
The Genealogy meeting was held in the
Redmond LDS church. Gail conducted the
meeting. Vance Haws gave an invocation.
We went around the room introducing
ourselves and told whom we were descended
Bruce Bingham reported on his contact
with Fern Rutledge. She is working hard
on her husband's genealogy and her health
is better. Fern was the former family
genealogist and did most of the work on
the family compiled in the books.
Gail talked about working with and
submitting information to the Ancestral
File. It can be accessed in the Family
History Centers. Note: At this time the
Church is running a test web sight that
you can access the Ancestral File
information. The address is:
. If you discover an error in the
Ancestral File send it to Gail and he can
get it corrected. If we have too many
people submitting files with names it has
a greater chance of creating errors. Also
if you have new names Gail will submit
them for you.
The use of the Internet was discussed for
doing Genealogy work.
http://ancestry.com is a good place to go
for researching names. A Cazier web page
was discussed and at this time we will
use Andy's page at
http://home1.gte.net/caziera until a need
to grow beyond this is determined.
Gail obtained a large number of names
from the Elizabeth line from Charles and
Carrie Davis. We haven't had a lot of
information on this line before. Gail has
been communicating with them sharing
Gail passed out a chart that showed the
link to all the known Caziers. He
commented that this might not be accurate
any more, as new Caziers are being found
that are not linked.
Where do we go from here? The next step
should consist of a book being written on
each of the children of William Cazier.
Names were discussed and possible people
that could be the coordinator for the
project. Some suggestions were that James
be coordinated by Don Cazier, Maranda and
Elizabeth by Gail Cazier, David Crocket
by Stanford Cazier and Charles Drake by
Kem Cazier. Benjamin, Samuel and Rosannah
had no recommendations.
