Bio Photo Hi!

A lifelong resident of Salt Lake County, I was born at 5:57 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20, 1992 at Holy Cross Hospital (now Salt Lake Regional Medical Center) in the East Central neighborhood of Salt Lake City.

Raised in West Valley City, I currently reside in the Liberty Wells neighborhood of Salt Lake City and am a proud Salt Laker.

Family history research led me to discover Find A Grave one day back in August of 2006. I subsequently joined and have greatly enjoyed contributing here since. I feel honored and privileged to be able to help document and memorialize the lives of those who came before me as well as preserve their information for future generations. It is truly a labor of love for me.

When not doing genealogical research, I'm deeply involved in Democratic politics at the local and state levels. I also enjoy reading, writing (I currently serve as a reporter for Utah Political Capitol and am a contributing writer at and the Deseret News), and listening to '70s and '80s music.

Please let me know of any corrections or additions that need to be made to one of my memorials.

As for transfers, I don't subscribe to the four-generation rule. If I've added a memorial for one of your relatives or friends and you would like to manage it, please let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you.

If you have time, please leave flowers for my grandfather, Brent Curtis; my grandfather, Norm Gibbons; my grandmother, Gae Gibbons; my aunt, Jane Brandenburg; my uncle, Marc Curtis; and my cousin, Clair Harward

Some ancestors had a magic way
Of leaving trails to climb each day
They had a goal and climbed with care
Faith gave them dreams and a home most fair
So from a land across the sea
They came to a land most promised to be
And lived their lives happy and free
They gave us freedom and a heritage great
Anchoring our souls from a cruel fate
Great thrills and joys their stories bring
Of the lives they lived and the songs they sing
God grant that I may useful be
And meet these dear ones in Eternity

Hi Ryan, this is Luana Morgan Kreifeldt. The memorial for my 3rd G grandmother Ruth Franklin is very nice. I came through David Avery Curtis who is a twin to John White Curtis. Can you add him in the children? Where did you find that Ruth was a 3rd GGNice to Benjamin Franklin?

Thanks for all your had work.
