I was born in Tennessee, but at the ripe old age of two, my parents moved to Charleston, South Carolina. In 1959, we were transferred to Knoxville, Tennessee and three years later to Atlanta, Georgia. I finished high school there, then served in the United States Marine Corps from 1965 to 1971 (Active duty from 1965 - 1969), from March, 1967 to April, 1968, I served in DaNang, Republic of South Vietnam with the 1st Marine Airwing. While in Vietnam, my family was transferred to Chicago, where upon my discharge from the Marines, I entered college and met my soon to be wife. After school, I went to work in the fluid power industry, retiring 33 years later. We still reside in the immediate Chicago area, traveling and working on our respective genealogies. We have been to all 50 states and state capitals, as well as over 55 other countries, with many more on our bucket list.

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordination is essential. Thanks for joining the US_HISTORY Project.

Thanks for becoming pre-1700 certified. Now that you will be working on older profiles you will find yourself working with others on profiles. The best way to collaborate is by joining a project. I see that you have German ancestors so might be interested in joining the German Roots Project. Have a read of their project page and see what you think. Let me know you have any questions.

I hope you're enjoying our site. Our primary vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person, so please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well!
Feel free to check out How To Use WikiTree. It's a great step-by-step guide to get you started.
And of course I'm here to help, just ask!
