Joseph Kraig is a native of Louisville but has lived in diverse locations Spain, Scotland, and Seattle, Washington, and Darian, Connecticut in the United States. Louisville has, however, always been the place to be. Joe’s roots start early in this country back to the 1600’s with ancestors that fought in the Revolution. Joe also has roots that go back to Germany. When Louisville was considered “THE” location for German families coming to the United States before the Civil War, his family got caught up in that struggle with his ancestor fighting in the Kentucky 5h for the Union.

Joe has attended several local schools and has several degrees including two in computer related sciences that are useful now in doing family history research. Until recently, Joe served as a Family History Center Librarian for nearly 20 years. He and his wife now serve in the LDS Area as Family History Advisors to leaders of the LDS Church in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
