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.
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.
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.
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.

I have created and or managed the following websites:

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
