A staff member of the British Reference section of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, Todd is an accredited genealogist who specialises in Jewish research. He has presented at conferences around the world, and his articles on Jewish research have been widely published. A desire to find out more about the lives of his own Jewish ancestors encouraged Todd to compile the Knowles Collection, a database containg the records of Jews from around the world.
