Louis started his genealogy over 35 years ago, about the same time he started computer programming. His University degrees in Statistics and Computer Science have given Louis a very different and innovative perspective on Genealogy research. Louis spent many years as Chair of the Archives Committee, as a Board Member and then as President of the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada. He built his website in 1997 and designed and operates the GenSoftReviews.com website where people go to review and rate their genealogy software. Louis is an active member of the BetterGEDCOM initiative to create a new standard for genealogy data transfer. In 2011, Louis released Version 1 of his own genealogy software Behold, designed to become the world's first report-based data editor for genealogy.
Louis lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with his wife Cheryl and two daughters. He works full time as the Manager of the Forecasting aDepartment at his province's electric and gas utility company. Genealogy and programming are his after-hour passions.
