2012 Reunion

Good Times, Good People, Good Food

Attending the 2012 Reunion was most enjoyable.  Met some people I didn't know, renewed acquaintenance with some I did, and found out where to go to learn more about my Craner roots.  Here are a few pictures  taken throughout the day.


George Craner (1857) Book

Our Cousin Gregory Craner has just made available to us all the wonderful book he compiled about George Craner (1857) and his wife Mary Caroline Adams.  There is a wealth of information, wonderful pictures and stories and a lot of genealogy presented here.  You may download his book by going to the following website address:  

I am sure you will enjoy the book.  Gregory explains in the Preface that most of the information was compiled by his father Herbert Craner.

If you would like a hard copy of this book you may purchase one ($11.98) by going to  Type in the search box "Craner".  Some of Gary's books will appear one of them being the George Craner (1857) book.



Lubitti Books

ATTENTION:  Copies of the books "George Craner, A Rescuer of the Hodgen Wagon Comany" and "My Nauvoo Ancestors" written by  Sheri Bowen Libutti  were just place on this website.  You can read the books by clicking on "Biographies and Stories" on the main menu and then clicking on the title.  Sheri did an excellent job researching the information presented in these books.  They are a very enjoyable read.

Tooele Chamber of Commerce

The Tooele Chamber of Commerce has completely renovated and updated our George Craner home in Tooele and are making it their new office building.  There is going to be an open house and dedication ceremony in May or June of this year.  Their magazine featured a picture of the home on the front cover.  Beth Sorensen supplied some pictures and a written history of George's life which were published in the magazine.  The pictures and associated articles are presented here.  A few family members thought that this would be a great time to have a Craner Reunion in Tooele.  We could all attend the dedication and tour the home.  We still need to set a couple of headstones in the Tooele Cemetery.  And it would be nice to review stories and work on the family lines.  Robert Carmody our family Chairman is getting the whole thing organized.  Write to him at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and let him know you are willing to help with the reunion.

Craner's and the New Family Search

Okay,  here is a story of interest to the whole family.  The Craner Line is now on the New Family Search (  We all need to go there and look at the records that have been submitted and make them the best that they can possibly be.  We need your help and your dedicated service.  

The website is available to all members of the LDS church now.   There you can view the entire pedigree chart for the Craner line.  All the records that we have on this website are on the website.  You must use this website to prepare names for temple work.  As you do work on this site you can attach your name to the work you do.  This allows everyone working on the site to see who is contributing information and how to contact them.  There is now a discussion feature associated with each name.  So if your information does not match what is on the site you can add your comments and references.  

You are encouraged to create an account and log on to the site.  if you have information about the Craner family that does not appear please add it.  We all want to make our family records as complete and accurate as possible.
