I've had a lifelong passion for history. My mother stimulated my interest by reading articles to me about ancient civilizations when I was just a young child. Fortunately, I got fascinated with genealogy in my early 20's. At that time, I still had three living grandparents and one great-grandparent who supplied valuable info. In the late 60's, I took on a large challenge for a young fellow in his 20's when I published a magazine, "The Genealogical Acorn." It was a critical success, but alas, not a financial one. Life led me to sales and eventually into the ownership of a termite and pest control company in Florida. My late beloved wife, Linda, and I sold the company in 1997 and decided to pursue genealogy on a full-time basis. Linda and I had a wonderful 33-year marriage and 3 wonderful children. After a valiant 5-year battle with cancer, she passed on 28 Jan 2015. In Dec of last year, I met a former client from 2000, Susan Wilkie. We struck up a friendship and are now engaged. She is as accomplished at family research as yours truly and will be helping me with our new website that is under construction, Linda and I had, but dealing with her death, I ended up dropping it and am now starting anew. Susan and I will be doing mostly online research. We are willing to work with clients on limited budgets, as we just love getting people excited about their ancestral roots.
