Lavone Johnson Anglen
Lavone Johnson Anglen has written a book “University United Methodist Church, Kansas City, Kansas Records –Members, Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths and Ministers 1919-2009”.
Mrs. Anglen is an experienced genealogist who was motivated to capture the University’s historical records for the benefit of other genealogists, as well as for the enjoyment of University members. Unable to find information on an ancestor, she realized that the records of University Church hold a wealth of genealogical information.
The records were in two separate books, not in alphabetical order and they were handwritten. Heritage Books agreed to publish her book and it is still for sale. The book contains over 1,436 members. At the present time, the church is experiencing only about sixteen to twenty members who come to church and it is in serious need of repair.
Mrs. Anglen is a member of the National Society of Colonial Dames XVll Century, Daughter of American Colonists, Daughter of the American Revolution. Daughter of War of 1812, National Society of Dames of the Court of Honor, Daughter of Union Veterans, Continental Society of Daughters of Indian Wars, Northland Genealogy Society (Missouri), Platte County Historical Society. She is also a Lady-in-Waiting for Daughters of Holland Dames.
Mrs. Anglen has compiled twenty-three books on her surnames and served five years as editor of The Rivers Bend, a newsletter for the Northland Genealogy Society of North Kansas City, Missouri.
Mrs. Anglen is married to Paul Gene Anglen. They live in Kansas City, Missouri, with Roscoe, their long-haired domestic tabby.
