Mark McKean Shepherd
1954 - 2017

Mark Shepherd photoOur colleague and friend Mark Shepherd returned to his heavenly home on December 4, 2017.

Mark was a founding member of FSFamilyTreeUserGroup. His love of family history was apparent to all who knew him. Mark served as a temple worker, family history consultant, and family history teacher. He developed a family history course that has been instrumental in helping new family historians learn the basics of family history in a fun and engaging way.

Mark brought a keen mind and logical approach to family history work. His carefully researched whitepaper on green temple hunting made a significant contribution to the genealogical community. His expertise in Norwegian research was valued by many who sought his advice and help.

We will miss Mark's skill, insights, and faithfulness. No doubt he is continuing his family history work on the other side of the veil and blessing many more of our Heavenly Father's children.
