My name is Laurie Alder. I live in Orem, Utah. I graduated from Brigham Young University in 1985 with a degree in Computer Science. Shortly after that I married and began raising my family so I have never really worked as a computer programmer. Instead I raised four sons who are now all grown and moving in their own directions. I am lucky enough to still be at home for them as they come and go because several of them still live at home as they attend Brigham Young University and work.
I found out about the Church Service Missionary Opportunities from a family history consultant and friend who works with the Facebook Group. As I researched the missionary opportunities I was drawn to the Wiki because I felt that I would be able to use some of my computer science knowledge in my service.
I enjoy doing family history work. I have done a lot of research in Scandinavia (mostly Sweden and Denmark), England, United States, Canada, and some in South America. I am currently a Temple and Family History Consultant and I teach the nine year old primary class along with my husband.
I enjoy traveling, reading, crocheting, and spending time with my grandkids.
