Who am I[edit | edit source]
I am a recent graduate of Madison Area Technical College with a degree in professional photography. I intend to work full-time as a commercial photographer beginning in Summer 2010. My portfolio shows some of my recent work.
In June 2000, I graduated from Lakeland College with a Bachelor's degree in computer science. I worked in the IT field for many years while and after earning this degree.
Genealogy interests[edit | edit source]
I began researching my own genealogy while attending Foster A. Begg Middle School in Manhattan Beach in the early 1980s. I was able to get a few interviews with older family members (and I wish I had the foresight to tape record them at the time). When it became clear that my girlfriend in high school and college would turn out to be more than just a girlfriend, I started researching her genealogy as well.
I consider myself an intermediate level amateur genealogist. I pursue genealogy as a hobby, more to find out where our families come from than anything else, but also to preserve the many family stories that have been related to me over the years. As I have time, I will try to update my genealogy blog, Finding the Flock.
