Raymon L. Naisbitt, AG®

Raymon Naisbitt grew up in a family history minded home and spent much time roaming cemeteries and learning about his ancestors and the lives they lived. He loves doing family history research which has opened doors to relatives not previously known. He has been employed with FamilySearch for eleven years and works as a consultant, instructor, and trainer at the Family History Library.  He is excited to be a member of the British Isles research team and has long range goals of one day becoming accredited in Ireland, Scotland and Wales to help facilitate his love of learning for these areas.
