I was born in Wyoming but my family moved many times in my youth throughout Northern Utah and Southeastern Idaho. I met and married my sweetheart while attending Brigham Young University. We have lived in Oregon, Texas, Arizona and Alaska while raising four children and since 1995 have lived in Utah.
Reading reference materials and genealogical information to increase my abilities in researching my Norwegian and American ancestors has been my avid hobby since 1983. In my earlier years I attended business management and genealogy classes at Brigham Young University and also studied at the University of Alaska and Utah State University.
I am currently a Family History Missionary in Salt Lake City in the User Guidance area of the Records Division.
