Retired from the US Army Reserves and from civilian service with the US Department of Energy. Family history has always interested me, so I figured I could dabble some here, especially being relatively home-bound, self-isolating during the pandemic.

My main focus is family and in-law connections - Holtz, Kolda, Schmidt, Schmid, Miller, Motiff, McCabe, Utley, Hearn, Norris, Heffner, Castellano, Mingora, and the branches off those. Much of the family was either Wisconsin or Pennsylvania, and Florida, although there are branches in other states.

When the weather improves, I may be able to assist with photo requests at Columbia Gardens, Arlington, VA.
