Background[edit | edit source]

Orem, Utah is my hometown. I am an avid researcher. My love for Family History started with the stories that my Grandmothers told me. One Grandmother was accurate about her family that took the westward trek and the other Grandmother totally fabricated her history complete with claims to royalty and grand wealth. This put me on a journey to authenticate my ancestor's history. Migration patterns have come to fascinate me. I served a Family History Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where I was given the chance to author articles for the wiki. That created a passion for this amazing research tool.

The more I learn, the more I find the need to help others on their journey of family discovery. The wiki is a wonderful vehicle for all of us to help each other. Everyone knows about something that could help someone else. Please just jump in and share your knowledge with the rest of us.
