    His maternal grandparents are Julian Livingston and Mary Pat.

    He also has a great-aunt (that’s what he calls her at least) named Gwendolyn “Gwen” (Char) Heliker, who is from Hawaii, and of Chinese descent. She appears to be connected to him from his mother’s side (in some way).

    Any help on what’s going on here? Why doesn’t his maternal grandparents have the same surname as his mother? Is there a biological connection to Gwen?

    Must be the first Mormon whose ancestry isn’t super easy to find. I’ve tried more than what should be necessary, given how much is usually known about Mormon family history.

    Could I again suggest they get their own tag?
