The Growing Years:
My experience in Genealogy research began more than 30 years ago researching my own family. At that time, very little information was available online. Since then, more and more information has become available.
Full Membership in several online websites provides a wide variety of access to various records worldwide. In some instances visits to local repositories is necessary for information not currently available online
My research has lead me to several visits to Philadelphia (and the surrounding area), Scotland, Ireland and England have resulted in acquiring evidence supporting conclustions drawn by my research.
More recently the increasing improvements and analysis of DNA testing and information sharing has added a new dimension to genealotical research - genetic genealogy.
Where we're going:
I am currently retired and intend to continue genealogy research in a way that may help others. To that end, I've established this website in hope of attracting others who may need additional support. Read about that interactive process in the Services Page
