LDS Inter-Stake Center, 830 E. 2nd Avenue, Mesa, Arizona 85204
D. Joshua Taylor, genealogist, speaker, and author, will be giving five presentations.

As host of the popular series Genealogy Roadshow (PBS) he crisscrosses the United States – solving longstanding family history mysteries and uncovering genealogical treasures at every turn. Since February 2016, Joshua has been the President of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society (NYG&B), America’s second oldest genealogical organization, headquartered in New York City.
 
An avid genealogist, Joshua has traced his own roots from Boston, Massachusetts to Bombay, India (and nearly everywhere in-between).

A popular speaker and author, Joshua frequently shares insights relating to family history and genealogy with audiences throughout the world.
