Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brian Ford Aikens, the middle name of Ford being my mother, Marilyn Ada Ford Aikens Day's (1934-2002) maiden name. My father is Ronald Garrard Aikens (1935-). I was introduced to genealogy when our BYU Ward put together our Four Generation Sheets for the Provo Temple dedication in 1972. Often I would go up to Ogden, Utah from school and listen to my Grandma Aikens stories. The family history bug caught. My father and I have traveled in West Virginia and Virginia tracking down family history and gravestones. The trek took us to Utah, with James William Aikens travels to Ogden, where I, my father and grandfather, Harold Raymond Aikens were born in the Dee Hospital. I have done quite a bit of research also on my wife's side, Bennett, Karcher, Whittle, Thomas and on and on. I love tracking down the family and gathering the stories. I can be reached at I would love to hear from you and share what we know.

Hi Brian,

I was notified that you had sponsored Shirley Duncan's memorial. I assume that you are either related or that she was a close friend. If you would like to manage her memorial, I would transfer it to your care. I would like to thank you for sponsoring her memorial. I would also like to apologize for taking so long to send you this note of thanks. I was without a computer for several weeks. Have a nice day!

Thanks, Richard
