I am a historian/history buff, collector of military antiques, and just one of a few family archivists and preservationists of our mutual family history. My education, training, and experiences have led me to a career working in the film industry as a Military & Historical Consultant for Film & Media. I find that this site allows me to use my obsessive detail oriented organizational skills to share our fascinating and amazing family history with other family members, friends, and the entire world, in a VERY respectful and honorable manner. We are mainly German, Irish, and Spanish (Spain), with a few other nations mixed in. So, some of our family documents are in foreign languages.

The majority of the memorials I manage are direct line family members. As such, I will likely find it hard to consider a transfer, as I consider this my sacred duty to manage their perpetual cyberspace memory. Besides, I likely have other family members in line to take responsibility for it, once it becomes time to pass it on. Nonetheless, feel free to email me with an explanation for your request, provide your member number, and your relationship to the transfer. As stated by so very many other contributors: Rudeness, harsh demands, and/or failure to follow these simple instructions will result in your being ignored.

FYI: When I manage other memorials, they are likely family friends, personal heroes, historical, or simply a deserving soul.

It is my sincere belief that:

“A man never truly dies, until he is forgotten”

Thus, it is my quest (that through this website and other such documentation methods), that the aforementioned will never occur under my watch, and that a lasting legacy of an individuals time on earth, will NEVER be forgotten!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. Please stop by and pay a visit to my little girl, Ashley.
