Precious family photos deserve to be preserved in their original form. The originals have details that will be lost in copies. Therefore, they ought to be preserved and digital copies displayed on walls or in scrapbooks.


Roger Dudley is a Denver native born to a couple who met via the mail during World War II. He began doing genealogical research in 1975 and has been hopelessly addicted ever since.

He conceived of a book soon after starting to do research and published In Their Time first in 1995 and again in 2012 in a much-expanded version with space for entering family dates and events going back to the year 1000.

He worked in the archives and on the Reference desk in the Western History and Genealogy Department of the Denver Public Library from 2006 to 2019.

In addition to the book intended for every genealogist he also wrote a history of the Norwegian side of his family. Both parents of his paternal grandmother were born in Norway and came to the US in 1868 and 1872 and met in Iowa where their parents settled. They married and started their family in Iowa before moving to Minnesota where the rest of their ten children were born. They moved to Colorado in 1909 and homesteaded in eastern Colorado where many descendants still live.
