Ricki King is a professional genealogist, an Iowa researcher and founder of Roots To Branches Genealogy. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Drake University, a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University s Center for Professional Education and holds a Certificate of Completion in the ProGen Study Program. In 2018 Ricki was instrumental in changing when death certificates and fetal death records could be accessed in Iowa. She requested the state legislature change the law in 2016. Because of her follow through the law was changed to open fetal death records to the public after 50 years where before there was no date allowing them to be opened. She also was able to change the access on death records from 75 years to the current 50 years. Ricki believes governor correspondence and funeral card/programs are an overlooked resource of genealogical information. She has a collection of African-American funeral programs and obituaries from her former business In Living Memory which is now a part of Roots To Branches Genealogy. She is working on indexing criminal and pardon records from Iowa s governor correspondence collection at the State Historical Society of Iowa.

She enjoys learning about her family as well as helping others embark on a journey to their family s past. History has been a passion of hers since she was a child. She started her genealogy passion as a child when she would listen to her maternal grandmother tell family stories and asking questions about the people she was hearing about. However, Ricki started researching her family in 2001.
