Genealogy: a non-combative blood sport.
Introduction

An amateur genealogist for more than 50 years, I served in the United States Air Force and have experience in business, office management, sales and quality control. I retired from Laboratory Corporation of America in 2001 and have since been a beta tester for several software companies. I joined BetterGEDCOM in February 2011; in November of that year, I became Moderator of the BetterGEDCOM Wiki and part of the group organizing FHISO. I served as Vice-President/Secretary of Family History Information Standards Organisation from March 2012 thru August 2013. I presently serve as Membership Standing Committee Coordinator of FHISO and Moderator of the BetterGEDCOM Wiki.

FHISO is a standards-setting organisation bringing the international family history and genealogical community together in a transparent, democratic forum for the purpose of developing information standards to solve today’s interoperability issues. To learn more about FHISO, visit our website, http://fhiso.org/ .
