Bio

I have been involved with genealogy, in one way or another, since about 1985. My forebears were German-Swiss on my father's side and Scotch-Irish, English and Highland Scots on my mother's side. (Boringly Protestant on both sides, I'm afraid.)

The first known ancestors of mine to arrive in North America from Europe were John Warren (1585-1667) and family, who came to Watertown, Massachusetts from County Essex, England in 1630 during the Great Puritan Migration. The most recent to arrive was my father (1913-2006), who came to the United States from Canton Bern, Switzerland with my grandmother (1890-1918) in 1915.

TRANSFERS - If you are more directly related than either my wife or myself to anyone whose memorial I manage, and you would like management transferred to you, all you need do is ask. Likewise, with a few exceptions, I will happily transfer any and all memorials for persons unrelated either to my wife or myself.

PHOTO VOLUNTEER - I am a photo volunteer, fulfilling photo requests at the Sunset View Cemetery and the Golden Gate Mausoleum & Columbaria in El Cerrito, CA and the Northbrae Community Church Columbarium in Berkeley, CA. Do not hesitate to send me a direct message or an e-mail requesting a photo from one of these cemeteries. You have my permission to use any photograph I have taken displayed on any Find A Grave memorial for whatever lawful purpose.

CORPORALS OF THE WORLD - My late father, who served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserve, had an expression for the self-annoited, self-appointed enforcers of rules and regulations down to the minutiae. He called them "the corporals of the world," a corporal being the lowest-ranking non-commissioned officer in the military. Trust me, I've crossed paths with a few "corporals" on Find a Grave! That being noted, you have my full, complete, express permission to use anything contained in the memorials I manage for whatever lawful purpose. I do not need credit for anything I contribute to your memorials.

Namaste.
