Juengling speaks English, German, Dutch and Norwegian and has competence in Medieval Latin. Other courses of study have included Old, Middle, and Early Modern English, Old and Middle High German, Old Norse (Old Icelandic), Gothic, Old Frisian, Old Saxon, Middle Dutch, history of the English, German, Dutch, and Scandinavian languages, Latin and Greek philology, Latin paleography, and Middle English paleography.[1] Juengling's language proficiency has enabled him to hold posts at Sprague High School[2] in Salem, Oregon, as well as Willamette University and teaching courses at genealogical seminars.[3][4][5]

In 1999, Juengling authored the book The Origins of the Southern Hemisphere Accents of English.[6] That same year, Juengling's work was included in two German textbooks by Ray Wakefield (Beginning German I and Beginning German II)[1] and the scholarly journal Language Matters: Studies in the Languages of Africa.[7]

Since 1999, Juengling has made numerous contributions to language, phonological and genealogical academia and has produced both sole and co-authored works.

Juengling is an accredited genealogist[8] and as of early 2014 works for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is the team leader for the Scandinavian research department.[9]

He is the nephew of genealogist and author Sybil Gibson Higley through his mother.[11]

One of the Juengling family homes is located in Bountiful, Utah.[12]


In 1999 Juengling received a PhD from the University of Minnesota in Germanic Philology with minors in both English and Linguistics. His adviser for the doctoral program was Anatoly Liberman.[13] Juengling had previously earned his Masters in Germanic Philology from the same school.

For his Bachelors programs, his first BA from Western Oregon University was in Secondary Education with Honors along with his second BA in International Studies with a German Emphasis with Honors.[14] During these studies Juengling earned a Certificate of Graduation from the LDS Institute of Religion.[1]
