My name is Elizabeth Snow or Liz for short. I have always loved Family History. I grew up in Ohio with wonderful parents and 7 brothers and sisters. I have 6 children, 13 grandchildren and a great husband who supports all my family history endeavors. My husband and I now live in Utah. We have spent several of our anniversaries and birthdays at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I have traveled to England and Spain in search of ancestors. I thoroughly love archival research where you get to see the original documents.
- BA in Family History from Brigham Young University, 2011.

Classes I Have Taught
I love teaching about family history and helping others to find the connection that will spur them on to learning about and loving their own ancestors.
