Site Description

Welsh flagAmerican flag

     This site was designed to publish genealogy resources we have. These are mostly church records of my grandfather, Rev. Maxwell W. Rice, who began his career as a curate at St. George's in NYC, then went to Utah as a missionary in 1908 and served there until 1918, mostly in Garfield and Salt Lake City. While there he met and married my grandmother, Alice Marion Monger. In 1918 they moved back east and he took over at Zion Church in Wappinger's Falls, NY. He finished his career in Dalton, Mass., where he worked until retirement.

     Most of the records published here are from Utah, though some are from St. George's and Zion. Most of the latter I have omitted as many of the people are probably still alive.

     Also included in this site is my own ancestry and genealogical information, my great-grandfather's diaries from the years he was a professor at UVM and Williams College, my great-uncle Roger's account of growing up in Williamstown, some information on Vermont I have acquired from my parents, and information acquired through my genealogical research.
