Avard Hart


My name is Avard Hart and I was born in Rexburg, Idaho; one of 7 children.  I was privileged to serve a 2-year church mission to Venezuela between 1972 and 1974.  I graduated from BYU in 1976 and AGSIM in 1978.  

I started working for IBM in 1978 in Los Angeles; which is where I met my wife Linda.  We were married in 1979 and we have 4 children and 10+ grandchildren.  My favorite color is purple.

While working for IBM, I have worked in a variety of technical and sales positions; augmented with leadership roles in business integration, messaging systems, and cloud and business analytics.

I have been doing family history research and indexing for over 50 years.
