"The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it."
--William James (b1842-d1910)
American philosopher and psychologist

I have been working for over 17 years to compile an accurate and as complete as possible our family history for future generations. Analytical, tenacious and cross-referencing describe how I do my research. Inaccurate information is worse than none at all.

If and when I see incomplete or inaccurate memorials, and if I have reliable sources, I feel obliged to advise whoever maintains the memorial. Once something is posted on the Internet it is usually difficult to rescind any errors that have been copied. If everyone took the time and effort to address these issues, then we are doing a real service to our ancestors and descendants.

Anyone who feels an error has been made, or if I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am very willing to collaborate and/or help other researchers if possible.
