I was born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. After my parents were divorced, I was raised by my maternal grandmother, Charlotte Knupp Langham, who got me interested in genealogy by telling me stories from her younger days growing up in Indiana County, PA. After her death, I finished college and began my life's journey by moving to New York City and onto Philadelphia which became my new home for 30 years. During the 1990's, I began my research in our family history and had amassed a family tree containing over 25,000 people. Sadly, the computer that stored this precious information crashed, and my history and hard work was gone in an instant. Now that I am retired, I have returned to my hometown to begin this journey again. I have chosen Wikitree as the repository of my family history to insure its preservation in the future.

As part of a re-vitalization of the WikiTree US Presidents Project we are asking members if they are planning to continue their contributions to the project. We are establishing a page where everyone can identify the President or Vice President that they wish to manage. Just respond to this message to let me know 1) Are you planning to continue with the Project and 2) do you have a specific President or Vice President that you are interested in.

Hello, Ray,

We are sorry to lose you as a member of the Military and War Project, but we understand that life gets busy and interests shift. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin the project in the future if you wish.

Hello, Ray,

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Military and War Project and we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hello, Ray,

On behalf of the Military and War Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members.

First, we want to thank you for your past participation in the Military and War Project. We appreciate your desire to honor your ancestors for their service to their countries, or even for your service, wherever in the world. We hope that your membership has enhanced your WikiTree experience.

Please let me know, by commenting on my profile or sending a private message, if you are still active in the project, and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the main project or a sub-project within the last two months.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Raymond, My thanks goes out to you for knowing and sharing all the information about my family tree. Since my parents were both born Lydic, their tree goes back on itself and looks more like a bush than a tree. I am able to pick up pieces when I have time since the information is right there where you put it. Again, Thank You.

Raymond, do you happen to speak any other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | sk-2 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively and intermediate Slovak, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-1 for basic Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:
