Introduction

I am a native San Diegan, a graduate of San Diego State University, a retired aerospace engineer, a genealogist and a family guy. 

Angel Linda and I love to travel to visit friends and relatives, to sightsee, to cruise or to do genealogy. Our travels have taken us all over the USA, to England and Scandinavia.
 
Did I mention that I do genealogy?  Just a bit...almost every day, every week, all year long.
