DOWNLINE RESEARCH

For the past several years our Farr family has been doing downline research from the three sons of Winslow & Olive Freeman Farr:

Aaron Farr
Lorin Farr
Winslow Farr Jr.

Our motivation and inspiration for this project came from Elder Richard G. Scott of the Council of the Twelve in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He challenged family members to search out their family coming down from one of these three ancestors. He also felt that we could go ahead and do temple ordinances where desired on those family members who did not obtain these blessings during their mortal life. Elder Scott has been a constant source of inspiration to us in doing research and temple work. Wherever possible, he speaks at our special temple reunion services that are held every three years. He has also performed other temple work and eagerly seeks to do more. We appreciate his example. To read his letter to our family, please click on the link below.

Elder Scott was married to Janeen Watkins, a descendant of Ben E. Rich and Diantha Farr. Before she passed away, she was also an avid genealogist and supporter of our efforts. She spoke at one of our reunions and was always available to help in whatever way she could. We would like to dedicate this site to Elder & Sister Richard G. Scott for their highly valued work.

Cindy Treu is our research assistant in charge of maintaining our down line assignments and training those who wish to work on Family Tree and other research programs. She has over 8,000 names on the Farr down line from Winslow & Olive Farr. All changes, updates and improvements should be made thru her.’ She will provide any interested family member their down line and help train them to do the work. You can reach Cindy at atrukid@juno.com or call her at 801-864-4903.
