Recording Family History is a family owned and operated business located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the small town of Twain Harte. James has been married for 22 years to his lovely wife Gloria. Together they have four children, Sarah, Jedidiah, Beth, and Rebecca.  James has been teaching in Mariposa and Tuolumne counties for many years and particularly enjoys teaching Jr. High. His wife Gloria works at Chapel in the Pines as one of the secretary’s/book-keeper. James also blogs on a regular basis at Knowing For Sure on the evidence for his Christian faith, and welcomes those who are skeptical or disbelieving.

Years ago when his son began playing soccer at the age of six, James began recording some of the games. He then turned the video clips into a season end DVD for the parents. Those were so popular he had the idea of doing a year book DVD for the school where he was working. Again those were very popular and he was able to raise some classroom funds every year by the sales of the DVD’s.  Not long after that he had the idea of interviewing people who would tell their life story and Recording Family History was born.
