Hi I'm Melinda

Hi, I'm Melinda. I'm an Administrative Assistant & a genealogist but most importantly a wife, mother & grandmother.

About Me

I live in southern California, have all my life except for 4 months in Provo, Utah. I work for a non-profit organization as an Administrative Assistant, have for 23 years. I have 4 adult children-3 sons and a daughter. I feel my work as a wife, mother and grandmother is the most important work I will ever do. I just became a grandmother and look forward to this phase of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family where my mother was a member, my father was not. I saw the value of following the teachings of the gospel as a teenager and wanted to raise my children that way. I was lucky enough to find a good husband who leads our family. I stay active because I know the teachings are true. I feel it in my heart. Life isn't always easy and doesn't always make sense but the Gospel will always be true.

How I live my faith

I help people do genealogy family history work. I have loved family history work from the time I was a young teenager. It is very important to me because it brings families together. At the conclusion of this earth life we will be with our families and learning about them now is something I enjoy. I find it rewarding to help others learn to do the same thing.
