I have been doing family history research for more than 44 years. Puzzling out the difficult problems provides challenges and rewards like no other. I especially enjoy discovering the life stories of my ancestors and the perspective it offers to my own life. When yDNA testing was introduced I was an early adopter of this revolutionary method for breaking down genealogical barriers. Through this medium I have been able to collaborate with very distant genetically related cousins on family research even though we may not yet know who our common ancestor was. The earlier each ancestor lived, the fewer the available records, so if you have knowledge about a family or person whose memorial I've established, please leave me a message. We can make better genealogical progress and more effectively honor those who came before us when we work together.
