Story
Introduction
I am actively involved in church, Boy Scouts, and family history. I enjoy teaching people about their environment, how cultural biases influence our views of the world around us and how those views have changed over time. I also enjoy teaching and speaking on genealogy related topics. I am interested in trying out new tech toys, beta testing software and websites, and doing random research on many other topics. My current job is working on the restoration of the Everglades ecosystem.


Suggestions for Circles I would like to be involved in are Genealogy, LDS, Environment, Technology, Android Users, Scouting, as well as others.

Family names I am researching are Westerheide, Bielefeld, Wesner, Walker, Meyer, Mescher, Garman, Wise, Coker, Stueve, Bruns, Lexow, Reeder, LeBoeuf, Vickery and many others.
Bragging rights
I have a wonderful family who are involved in church and Scouting. My son recently earned his Eagle and Order of the Arrow at the age of 14.

The Noa Victoria is downtown this week. It is an exact replica of Ferdinand Magellan's ship that was the first to circumnavigate the globe on a three year, 32,000 mile voyage from 1519-1522. It was downtown by the Main Street Bridge. http://www.tallshipevent.com/

My latest blog biography has been posted. This one is about George Vickery, soliciter, writer and legislator for Jersey, Channel Islands. http://ourancestories.blogspot.com/2014/03/george-vickery-1824-1874-52-ancestors.html 
This is week 13 of the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge. I am working ahead to try to have a few posts ready in reserve just in case. It seems like I am focusing on my wife's line again, especially her ancestors from the Ch...

On March 19, Carson City became the first city in California to ban oil drilling — at least temporarily.

Flummoxed by an oil company's changing stories, Carson City plays tough -- and faces a longer battle.

New research led by the University of Exeter suggests that rising global temperatures will increase the quantity of the key greenhouse gas methane emitted from freshwater ecosystems to the Earth's atmosphere - which could in turn lead to further warming.

Luckily I had a couple blog posts ready to be published automatically because I haven't had time to write any new ones with everything going on with the new home purchase. Now I have none left in reserve.

This one is about my great-great grandfather, Joseph Reiss.

Olympic National Park has released of a new Science Minute Movie by the North Coast and Cascades Science Learning Network (NCCSLN). Tides of Change takes viewers behind-the-scenes of Olympic National Park with coastal ecologist Dr. Steve Fradkin, as he traverses one of the most remote, wild, and scenic coastlines in North America to monitor the health of the park's rocky intertidal community.

The warming climate threatens to thaw permafrost, which will result in the release of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere creating feedbacks to climate change - more warming and greater permafrost thaw.

Working with David Rome and Ted Busetto on our purchase of a Chevy Volt was a great experience. They gave us the time to test the vehicle and answered all our questions. We had been looking at several other cars and decided to try the internet sales department at George Moore instead of just getting the first sales person that saw us drive up. That was the right choice to make and resulted in less pressure from the sales people. David was prompt in responding to our internet request. One of your fellow dealers took about a week to respond to a request that was sent at the same time. We worked with Nate Bailey on the financing and payments. That took several days to finally get a correct contract. There were always numbers or math errors that could not be explained. We eventually got to a point where we agreed upon the contract. Even though we had problems with the contracts we enjoyed talking to Nate and he was always friendly.
