The Motto I Live By

“If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.”

Francis Bacon

An Introduction and Perspective of My Life:


I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY then migrated to Fairview Park, Ohio in 1983.


I was educated and worked many years in the field of aircraft manufacturing and had a hand in manufacturing many of the aircraft that you fly in to this day ( the Boeing 747).


My life has been of “all work and no play” (my wife can attest to that.) In 1979 I assembled my first computer. I don’t know how many of you remember the old Heath Kits. Since then I have devoted all my spare time to peering into the glow of a PC monitor. When I retired in 1989, I began with a woodworking hobby, but soon found my way back in front of my PC. And here I sit as you view this (undoubtedly.)


I am active in the Northeast Ohio PC Club as an officer and webmaster. See


Genealogy has occupied my interest in the last few years and I have a close association with the Computer Assisted Genealogy Group, Cleveland Area (CAGG).


I am researching my family origin. You must see my Ahnentafel (Ancestor Table) for my family records.


I have had my DNA tested by the following laboratory and recommend you try this latest method of Genealogical Research. A positive approach to finding ancestors and unknown living relatives:
