Martin "Marty" Stuart Acks was born to Nancy Kay Lenover on April 22, 1957. Nancy married George "Bill" William Acks in 1968. In the summer between junior high school and high school in summer of 1971, Marty was adopted by Bill Acks and took the name Martin Stuart Acks at that time.
Marty was born and raised in Decatur, Illinois. He graduated Stephen Decatur High School in 1975. He was a member of the last graduating class. The school in the downtown was torn down to build a Civic Center.
In 1975 he enrolled at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Marty started in the Liberal Arts College but transferred into Engineering School after taking a class in Fortran. He graduated with a degree in Computer Sciences from the College of Engineering in 1979. Marty attended the summer school at Illinois State University in the summer of 1976.
Marty married his college sweetheart, Carine Mary Christiaens in 1980. The wedding was at the parish church in which she grew up, St. Willibrord Church in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago. They have one son, Brian Michael Acks.
Marty's first job was detasseling corn in central Illinois around the age of 14 or 15. Through high school and college, he worked at Eisner's grocery store (later acquired by Jewel). While at Eisner's, he was a five-year member of the United Retail Workers.
Upon graduating from college, Marty took a job in the computer software industry in the Chicago suburbs. He has held a number of different positions in the software industry over the course of his career. He co-founded Silvon Software in 1987.
My closest presidential relative seems to be George Washington at 3rd cousin, eight times removed.
14 the of the 15 Magna Carta Barons are direct ancestors. The 15th is a cousin.
No known connections. Currently, there is nothing even pointing that direction.

If Edith May( George) Munson-Stutzman died when she was an infant then I don't exist beings she my grandmother. The mother of my father Marvin Leroy Monson.
and if Wanda Palmer also died in infancy then my great aunt Susan and all her children don't exist either.
Marty I am so so sorry I am new to this and I read the report wrong. I thought it was saying your edit was the stuff written above the yellow spaces. Which said my grandma and great aunt died when they were infants. Please forgive me @hug@
