I am passionate about Families. I recognize that there is more to genealogy than just the people who comprise the family history. It is the stories of the trials and triumphs that define them.

I am dedicated to helping your family record and protect the memories of your life. I offer a safe place to share and record your treasured moments for future generations to share.

BYUI Family History Research Graduates


Deanne Trowbridge

Beyond The Grave

My name is Deanne Trowbridge and I am from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I graduated from Brigham Young University- Idaho on July 23, 2018, with a degree in Family History Research. I first became interested in genealogy after seeing an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? On the show, it highlighted Cindy Crawford and her ancestor Thomas Trowbridge who was from England. Since I had done previous research on Ancestry, I knew we shared a common ancestor which was Thomas Trowbridge. Thomas and his wife Elizabeth had a son, William on September 3, 1633, in Exeter, Devon, England! I wanted to find out more information on this ancestor, so I took classes in England and Wales while at BYU-Idaho, only to find out that my ancestor, William didn’t meet the requirements, so I conducted genealogy research on a classmate’s ancestor for my class project. As a result, I learned how to order civil registration records (which were birth, marriage and death certificates) from the General Register Office in London.  Please hire me to help discover your own neat findings about your family just as I did with my family. Feel free to email me with any questions you might have.
