      4. I looked at the old Ogden 8th Ward records (FHL films 25658 and 25659). I found only the birth, blessing, and baptismal records for Shirley and Jack, but not for Paul and his siblings as Children. His family evidently lived in a different ward.

      PHOTOS:
      1. Per email dated 13 Dec 2012 from Irene Petersen with photos of homes attached:
      "Petersens and Hales had their land on 3rd street in Ogden just below Madison avenue and also the remodeled house of Aunt Christine Petersen at 108 Adams street. if you look at the famous picture of the family sitting outdoors on that land you would see that the mountains in background match the picture I took. If you go on Google map and put 670 3rd street, Ogden, you will see that land or what is left of it. It is just above the Canal. Talk to Chris about it.
      When we took the picture of grandpa Frank's house, the owner Mr. Chournos came out and invited us to go thru the whole house and see all the changes he made in it. He has lived there for 37 years. He has taken real good care of it and Dad was real pleased. He also found a lot of dad's toys over the years: marbles and little cars. He gave us a Christmas card that was sent to your grandmother Irene in December 1945 from her friend, still in the original envelope. He also made changes on the front entrance on the peak above the front door. He is getting ready to change the front door soon as it is pretty rotten. Grandma Irene had made a curtain for that door and he still had it and he gave it to us. Still in good condition."
