Biography

Harvey was born and raised in Orlando, FL. At the time, it was a small agriculturally-based town (citrus fruit mostly) with no tourist economy of significance. It was a pleasant place in which to grow up. No one really knew about it. If you told anyone from "up north" that it was your home, their response was usually "Oh, is that anywhere near Miami?".

Harvey attended college and graduated from Emory University [BBA, Finance, 1970] in Atlanta, GA as well as the University of Central Florida (then known as FTU) [BSBA, Accounting, 1977] and also attended Florida International University in Miami. He is a retired CPA and retired I.T. network administrator. In 2013, his wife, Mara, [1] and he relocated to Atlanta, GA to be nearer to their grandchildren. Mara's biological daughter, Dana Sugar, is Harvey's adopted daughter as well.

Oh, and just to be thorough and complete, he was married twice before briefly. First to Karen Renee Sonne (a/k/a Karen Mangham) [2] [3] and second to Eva Rosenblitt (a/k/a Yael Heimer; a/k/a Yael Barkay) [4] [5]

Hebrew name: Chaim Nahum ben Yaacov Yosef HaLevi[6]

Hi! We see the name Ganz so infrequently that I had to message you! My husband’s family is from Mamoros county, Transylvania, Romania. Im wondering if we have any connections? I don’t see anything specific in your ancestry. My husband has a DNA test but he isn’t on Wikitree.

Hi Malana,

Please forgive the long wait for a reply from me. As for my Ganz family, they emigrated from Kowal, Poland into the USA, Canada, and the United Kingdom. I am not aware of any Romania connection. Also the surname Ganz only began to be used after arrival in the USA. Harvey
