Bio

Little bit about myself. I retired last year from AT&T with 40 years service. I graduated from Texas A&M in telephone communications.
I was inquisitive about my linage since I was a child. I was clueless. My father passed away when He was 75 yeas old. I was 13. At that time, the only direct family I had was my parents and siblings.
My research took off when I had to get my Naturalization citizenship in order. Since the courthouse that housed my fathers birth certificate burned down, I had the dilemma of proving my father, Richman, was a citizen. My late sister, Lina and I went to our local genealogy library. Since then, I was hooked.
They only document that will prove citizenship is is either a birth certificate or a baptismal record. I had to hire a genealogist in Michigan and she located the baptismal record.

Update: My father's Baptism record was accepted as proof of his birth in the United States. I have been declared as a Naturalized Citizen of the United States.
