Kyle was born as C. Kyle Dane (no first name, just a first initial) at Arcadia Methodist Hospital in Arcadia, California on July 14th, 1970 (Bastille Day). He married his high school sweetheart, Raquel Montoya in 1998 and they have two children: Annabel, born in 2004 and Lucy, born in 2007.
Kyle caught the genealogy and family history bug from his grandmother, Edith Thacher Dane, who gave him a copy of a hand-written family tree produced for her grandmother, Elizabeth Baldwin Sherman when Kyle was a child. He started digging into family history during his college days at UCLA, and has gradually built an extensive family tree as resources and other researchers have increasingly come online since 1995. Kyle uses various avenues to record his genealogy experiences and to preserve and digitize family stories and media, including blogging: http://danegenealogy.blogspot.com; scanning digital media on Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/kyledane/) and Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kyleshistory/); (http://www.flickr.com/photos/78596477@N07/). Kyle has been maintaining and updating profiles on WikiTree.com since 2013. Kyle is the Project Coordinator for WikiTree's Witch Trials Project and has done a great deal of work on profiles and free space pages related to the Salem Witch Trials.
Kyle graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Economics in 1993. He also has a Master's in Economics from UC Davis (2002).
He has worked:
Somewhere in all this, Kyle wrote a science fiction novel called Fortress Beverly Hills (2009) . The novel is self-published through Lulu.com (http://www.lulu.com/shop/kyle-dane/fortress-beverly-hills/paperback/product-5531898.html) and Amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005H97XYA/) and has been promoted only lightly, so it's sold less than a hundred copies so far. Maybe someday...
Kyle was one of three founding members of the Galaxians S.C. in 1996, a supporters club for Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy (https://www.lagalaxy.com/club/supporters/galaxians). He counts as one of his most memorable experiences a trip to Portland, Oregon in 1997 to support his national soccer team in the United States Men's World Cup Qualifier against Costa Rica.
