<p>My first experience of volunteer work came in 1999 when I adopted a county in the GENUKI network.  My ancestors came from Kirkcudbrightshire in Scotland, so I volunteered to develop the county page and the parish pages.  Since then I have put my own genealogy on the internet.  I use TNG (The Next Generation) which is a PHP website, and it is like having a genealogy program on the internet.</br>
 
My ancestors can be traced to Switzerland and the United Kingdom.  I have traveled to the United Kingdom a number of times and Switzerland one time with the sole purpose of visiting their home towns and gathering records at the archives and record offices.  <br>
 
My father side of the family immigrated from the small towns of Recherswil and Melchnau to the United States in the early 1900’s being converts to the Church. <br>
 
My mother’s side of the family can be traced to the United Kingdom.  The earliest roots can be traced to Suffolk, England; Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland; and Ireland.    The Mckenzie's came from the parish of Urr in Kirkcudbrightshire.  When I was at the National Archives of Scotland many years ago I gathered some records pertaining to the parish. </p>
 
 
 
I have created and or managed the following websites:
 
*[http://donjaggi.net/winnifred/index.php  Scogings Mckenzie Genealogy]
 
*[http://donjaggi.net/gottfried/index.php  Jaggi Stettler Genealogy]
 
*[http://donjaggi.net/  DonJaggi.net]
 
*[http://donjaggi.net/winnifred/histories/mckenzie/johnjames.html  John James Mckenzie 1868 to 1920]
 
*[http://donjaggi.net/galloway/index.html Urr Parish Page] with transcribed records pertaining to the parish
 
*William Bye Scogings 1822 to 1886 - yet to be completed
 
 
 
Every year over the years I have attended various conferences:
 
*BYU Family History and  Computer Conferences
 
*Utah Genealogical Association
 
*ICAPGEN and APG Conferences in Utah
 
*Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy
 
 
 
Over the years I have belonged to various Genealogical Society’s:
 
*Association of Professional Genealogists
 
*Dumfries and Galloway Family History Society
 
*Suffolk Family History Society
 
*Utah Genealogical Association
