OGDEN -- Mark Stuart, a seminary and institute instructor for more than 37 years, will be the guest speaker today at the Ogden Family Search Library at 539 E. 24th St.
Stuart's speech, "Mormons and the Transcontinental Railroad," is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. in Room 12.
Stuart said he developed an interest in trains and the events that they brought to the Top of Utah while listening to stories told by his grandfather. He has maintained a lifelong interest in the subject, as well as Native American cultures and the Morrisite War.
Stuart is working as a teacher's aide at Spectrum Academy in North Salt Lake.
