There are several things that need to be disclosed and disclaimed when I write a blog post.
From time to time, I have been paid or employed by different entities for presentations and writing.
I practiced law as an attorney in Arizona for over 39 years. However, I am now fully retired. Anything I write in the blog is not intended as legal advice on any current case or controversy. I do not represent any company or any individual employed by them in any legal capacity. I presently have no clients left and will not undertake to represent any more clients in the future.
Any mention I make of products, services, websites or any other entity is fully my personal opinion and does not represent the opinion of any other entity, however, I may be teaming up with some providers of genealogical services to make special offers to my readers for which I may be compensated. From time to time I have been provided with free products to review, however, the reviews are my own opinions and not those of the product supplier.
I am not currently associated with FamilySearch or any of its subdivisions or entities other than on a purely voluntary basis. I have worked as a Church Service Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served at the Brigham Young University Family History Library in Provo, Utah and previously at the Mesa FamilySearch Library in Mesa, Arizona which has now been closed. I also volunteer in other Family History Centers. As a volunteer, I help patrons and teach classes. I also volunteer for FamilySearch in a variety of other capacities. I recently served a one-year, full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a Record Preservation Specialist working at the Maryland State Archives digitizing records for FamilySearch. I am on the Board of Directors of FamilyHistoryExpos.com and The Family History Guide Association sponsor for TheFHGuide.com website.
I am currently writing and publishing books and other publications for profit. Those publications I write are published both on paper and electronically. From time to time, I may promote my own personal writings on this blog. I am also a professional photographer and links to my photography blogs are on this site.
I also drive a Subaru but I do not work for Subaru in any capacity. I also had an old Chevy Truck, since sold, and I refuse to work for General Motors. But I certainly appreciate anyone who does.
