Ancestors Loved, Ancestors Found, Ancestors Bound Forever
Home Page: About Jana

Jana Stokes of Bountiful, Utah is President of the Gidney Family Organization; a Family History Ward Consultant; and a FamilySearch Wiki Contributor.

I can be contacted through Facebook or LinkedIn

These pages are designed for descendants beginning their family history, who are more interested in family stories and basic data, rather than extensive documentation. If you take your family history more seriously than that, contact me with your SPECIFIC question and focus. Anyone is welcome to ask any question, including "Is this still the brick wall?"

I maintain an ancestral pedigree on FamilySearch's FamilyTree, which is open to the public. I also use or contribute, in varying degrees, to a variety of other online tree services. But most of what I know about specific ancestors is not on the web. So check in with me if you have questions about a common ancestral line or a common geographic research location.
