Michael Maranda is one patient man! He's been my mentor, my plumber cum automechanic cum translator for all the difficulties brought into focus by my lack of polished and finicky computer skills. He's smart and endlessly kind, gracious when I've done what the knowledgeable person would call "stupid" if they were crabby that day. I've pushed hard to get the Jewish Roots project started, and doing that "ain't been easy." It's still in process/progress, a state which will likely go on and on. But I for one want to get back to finding my own Jewish Roots and sharing with our group and others some things we want to know: answers to questions we didn't know how to ask. Viva la Maranda! –– a true Man of La Wikitree!
