My name is Jeffrey Wilde. I first started doing genealogy when I
was in first grade. I watched my mom
fill out her large 8” X 14” pedigree chart and I wanted to do it as
well. I am afraid I got in the way
more than I helped. She told me if I
would practice my handwriting an hour a day for a week (that was something
I absolutely hated) she would let me help.
A week later I was filling out my own large pedigree chart with inch
tall block letters. The final
masterpiece was hardly academically sound, but it always reminds me of what
is important to me.
From June 1996 to June of 1998 I served a two year
mission in the England Birmingham Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. Over the two year
period I was able to visit the same places and walk the same streets where
my ancestors did. This solidified my
interest in genealogy.
Upon my return from England
I began work on my Family History/Genealogy minor at BYU. To complete the minor I had to take many
family history classes covering a variety of topics. My specialty is British research. I completed my minor degree in August
I am currently looking for employment and hope to start
medical school in August 2003.
