I am a member of the FamilySearch Wiki Support Team. I live in the beautiful state of Idaho. I recently retired as a software application developer at Hewlett-Packard. I joined the FamilySearch Wiki Support Team in October 2015 because family history is a passion of mine, and I'm excited about having a part in the FS Wiki. I'm a lifelong family history researcher and find myself continually fascinated as I learn about my ancestors and find out what life was like in their time and communities. These range from various places in the United Kingdom in 1600s and before, Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands, colonial New England and the Midwestern states - and probably more that I don't know about yet! As a volunteer in my church, I have taught many classes over the past 35 years to all different age groups. I have also worked to acquaint people with family history, FamilySearch, and how to research their own ancestors. To contact me via email, please use firstname.lastname@example.org.
