Biographical Sketch

Amy Harris, PhD, AG®, is the current Family History Program Coordinator at BYU.  A native of Ogden, Utah, she was lucky enough to be raised by spectacularly good parents and particularly stellar siblings. Her research focuses on families, women, and gender in eighteenth-century Britain, though she has also written on family and genealogy in the Mormon context.  She is particularly interested in the way family and social relationships inform one another. Her first book, Siblinghood and Social Relations in Georgian England (2012) explored sibling relationships and their connections to political and social ideas of equality.

Recently her article “Early Mormonism’s Expansive Family and the Browett Women” received the 2018 Mormon History Association Best Article Award. In 2018 she also published “A Genealogical Turn: Possibilities for Mormon Studies and Genealogical Scholarship” in Mormon Studies Review.Amy is a tenured professor in the BYU Department of History where she teaches history and genealogy courses.
