After attending college for several years with an emphasis on being an accountant, he decided he would die young from boredom if he pursued his studies and instead began genealogical research full time. Kevan specializes in German research and lived in Germany for a few years. He has worked in many different aspects of genealogy, including tracing ancestry for genetics for the University of Utah, and has written several articles for Ancestry magazine. He is a former president of the Salt Lake Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists and is the author of Ancestry's Finding Your German Ancestors: A Beginner's Guide.
