Woodbury, Paul


Paul Woodbury first developed an interest in genealogy when his grandparents gave him a family history binder for his eighth birthday. In 2006, he was introduced to genetic genealogy through a television special on African American research. The possibilities of this new and developing field captured his imagination, renewed his fascination for family history and led to his interest and career in the field.

Paul is a graduate of Brigham Young University where he studied genetics and family history. Recently he graduated with a masters degree in instructional design and educational technology from the University of Utah. Through his education and client research experience, he has developed specialties in DNA, French, Spanish, and Scandinavian research. Over the past five years, he has offered hundreds of classes, workshops and lectures on research topics relating to these areas. Currently he works as a Genetic Genealogy Specialist for Legacy Tree Genealogists. In addition to genealogy, Paul enjoys singing, skiing, hiking and balloon twisting. He and his family reside In Provo, Utah.
