Introduction
My career has involved technology and corporate management across the spectrum.  Now I'm taking time to do things I thoroughly enjoy:
  • Genealogy research and instructor
  • Radio - Amateur Extra and VE
  • CERT organizer and instructor
  • Emergency Preparedness instructor
  • Microsoft Certified Instructor
  • Business Management Consultant
  • Church Service and Community Volunteer
Vacations have frequently involved traveling to find old family homesteads, cemeteries and records.

When not delving into dusty old records or enjoying family, I'm often on air in my ham shack.
Bragging rights
Terrific wife and family

#universe  #galaxies Largest-ever map of 1.2 million galaxies measures dark energy. We are very small on a very large stage.
A decade-long survey of galaxies in the universe has revealed the crispest measurements yet of how dark energy drives the expansion fo the universe

#hacked   #pwned Have your account passwords on major sites been hacked? It's not new news but surprisingly folks aren't checking and aren't changing their passwords. Check your accounts via Pwned (free) You may have already changed your passwords on some sites thanks to them notifying you and telling you to do so. If you haven't checked and reacted as needed, you could still have serious login credentials problems. https://haveibeenpwned.com

#genealogy   Archaeologists scan Reading garden for bones of King Henry I. Most folks with English ancestry descend through Henry I, son of William "The Conqueror". Will his remains be found in the abbey he founded in Reading, Berkshire, England?

#memorialday   #genealogy   Once again it's time for the holiday visit to cemeteries and in my case, it's also time for the cemetery soft shoe... We look forward to visiting our ancestors graves every year where we remember them, tell their stories, thank them for their military service and teach our own descendants about their lineage and heritage.
Some of my earliest memories of visiting extended family members involves adhoc meetings by ancestors graves on Decoration Day. Yes, I'm old enough to know 'Memorial Day' as 'Decoration Day'. My mother always made sure that we visited all of the graves of her ancestors and my fathers ancestors ...

#removeflag   #unpatriotic   #liability   #safety   What is the true reason US flags called 'liability,' were ordered to be removed from New York fire trucks? Liability or ...
A group of Upstate New York fire officials on Monday ordered a department to stop flying American flags from its trucks, calling the patriotic display a liability and a possible distraction.

#garden #strawbale Straw bale gardening continues its prolific production promises. Almost all of our family members have straw bales gardens. After seeing them in person, most neighbors have them this year too.


Straw Bale Gardening Revisited The production from our straw bale garden was so good in 2015, we decided to expand it for 2016. We purchased the bales from a local seed store this year. The bales were shorter, less dense ...

#gardening #strawbale  Straw bale gardening revisited in 2016. Straw bale gardening is not only easy but fruit and vegetable production is extremely prolific.

Hi Lee,

Such great research and posts.  I couldn't send a comment on your Susannah North Martin blog - the research is excellent and very much appreciated (I'm  a descendant). And certainly worked around brick walls which is how I found you.

Remember to take a thumb drive with you to the Family History Library because a great deal of the information there isn't online and / or can't be posted online due to usage agreements with the source owners. Add your name or a unique identifier on the outside of your thumb drive because many library patrons forget that they've left their drive plugged into a library computer. The collection of lost drives can be huge in the lost and found. Most of us won't remember an exact description of our drive to aid in its recovery. Experienced researchers usually have a text file on their drive(s) labeled "Owner Information" or a similar name that contains their contact info. WiFi is available to patrons of the library but image file sizes and numerous other issues are resolved via a thumb drive. Take a research plan with you to maximize your chances of research success. You may want to visit the FamilySearch Catalog at home prior to the trip and identify the books and films you want to view while in the library. Many seasoned researchers print the catalog page at home and write notes on the reverse side in the library, thus their notes are sourced automatically and can be scanned later for digital preservation. The information you discover may or may not fit on a piece of paper and it may or may not be worth the time to write on the paper, but a short note on it will create a memory entry that helps you decipher the quick notes and thoughts that you left for your future self. Lastly, take $$ change with you for use in the vending machines in the break room that is located in the northeast corner of the main floor. Most folks think that they will leave the building for lunch, yet when they start finding information, they rarely want to leave their research table or desk for longer than a few minutes. It's easy to discover that your time in the library is too valuable to be wasted in such a 'mundane activity' as lunch.
