I had been dabbling in Family History for 40+ years. I would go to the Family History Library with my mom and look at films for her. I would get bored and be off on a tangent looking at other things on the films, until that got boring and I would go off and look at the books. Not looking for anything special, just wasting time.

When my wife and I got married over 35 years ago, she told my mom that Genealogy was for old people and my mother let us both know it was for everybody. My wife got serious about it and I still just dabbaled in it.

Then about 1999 I met Caroline Irwin. She got me to become a volunteer at the Ogden Family History Center.   Shortley therafter I became a Missionary at the Ogden Family History Center and served for about 6 years.  I took a couple of years off and I am now back at the Family History Center.I am also a volunteer helping with Find A Grave in Ogden. And because of Caroline, I am now also serving a Wiki Support Missionary.
