Mr. King has been peripherally involved the genealogy since 1956. His current assignment in his congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is that of Family History lead. As such, he coordinates the family history efforts of Family History consultants and the general membership of the congregation.
For over ten years Mr. King has been invited to make presentations on FamilySearch – the genealogy application published by the church. These presentations have included many of the libraries in the Baltimore area as well a senior centers and retirement communities.

I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and my calling in the church is as family history consultant.
I call myself a ‘scout’ since I seek out members and non-members who may be interested in learning how to create their family tree on FamilySearch, a free website of the church.
I contact senior centers and libraries in Baltimore County and City, as well as genealogical societies, like your own Baltimore County Geneological Society in Parkville when I contacted Ken Zimmerman in Sep. 2021 before the pandemic took hold again, to ask if they’d be interested in having Michael King, our family history lead, teach a free class on either the beginning basics of FamilySearch or an advanced ‘Memories’ class – demonstrating on a projector in person or on Zoom how to upload photos, stories, and documents of their deceased ancestors onto their tree. If organizations are interested, then I set up appointments for Michael King to teach there. We have taught so far at several Enoch Pratt libraries and Baltimore County senior centers, and are always looking to add more places to teach, since the church is top-notch in family history and we are seeking to make this information accessible to all communities everywhere.
I’m retired from working in sales at several Baltimore County cemeteries over the years, including Parkwood, Gardens of Faith, Holy Redeemer, and Loudon Park. I now work part-time selling hot dogs to golfers at Suburban Country Club. But my main goal is writing books about stray animals I have known and loved (mostly cats), and writing a book about my mother’s growing up years during the Great Depression in train town, Brunswick, MD.
