One of my favorite websites to check out when I have a question or I want to read through the process (the email back and forth on any of the sourcing issues is fascinating and you can actually follow the process and see if you come to the same conclusions as the posters). I appreciate that ESM takes the time to weigh in and share her knowledge. A terrific website!

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.
