He holds a B.S. from Western Washington University, and an MPA from The Evergreen State College where he taught for seven years as an adjunct faculty. Steven’s advanced training includes ten genealogical institutes.

Steven was invited to speak at the Family History & Genealogical Conference in Provo, Utah; the Ulster American Heritage Symposium in Omagh, County Tyrone, Ireland; and in 2015 at the Yearly Meeting of Friends in Ireland, at Newry, in County Down.

In 1998 Steven began his genealogical journey by self-publishing a remembrance of his grandmother Waltz. It is now part of a millennium time capsule on the Washington State Capitol Campus, and in the Family History Library at Salt Lake City. He’s published multiple articles about Quakers, most recently in the 2016 fall edition of The Genealogist. For this The American Society of Genealogists awarded Steven the 2016 Scholar Award.
