I spent my whole adult life traveling for the military and Gov. I retired after 30yrs and now, trying to learn how to go about finding out about my family in the past and see who and where I came from. I finally have the time to actually think and relax (minus a few days and weeks being gone on mini vacations lol), so thinking it would be wonderful to finally see the past for myself and especially my future grandkids to know and understand their history. About myself, I have lived all over the world such as Italy, Japan, Spain, etc. I have also visited many places for work or fun like Egypt, Africa, Israel, Germany, etc. some for a few days and some for a few weeks lol. I have also lived in many different states here in the US because of work or family. Mainly I have always tried to live life to its fullest when I was younger and wanted to be that grandpa later that says "yep been there done that" lol I tried to go to any school or training offered, have 2 college degrees (not an English major as you can see lol) been on both the Enlisted and Officer side of the military, I am also licensed in scuba, LSA pilot and many other things. I hope I can build my family tree with any help from you good folks, if you see something I am missing and know of that piece please let me know as I try figuring it all out lol. Anyhoo, I look forward to meeting new friends and learning this new adventure in my life so thank you all in advance.
