As a fun part of my assignment as a RootsTech Ambassador, I was privileged to be able to give away a three-day pass to this marvelous event. The person who won the pass is Victor Cave. He was born and raised in Tahiti, went to school in Hawaii and eventually moved to Australia. He went back to Tahiti to serve as a mission president there for three years. He now resides in Springville with his lovely wife and is the education director for the Springville Family History Center located on 400 South and 200 East.
