I was born and raised in Orlando, FL. At the time, it was a small agriculturally based town (Oranges 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?".
I 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. I am a retired CPA and retired I.T. network administrator. My wife, Mara, and I have relocated to Atlanta, GA to be nearer to our grandchildren. Mara's biological daughter, Dana Sugar, is MY adopted daughter as well.
Oh, and just to be thorough and complete, I was married twice before briefly. First to Karen Renee Sonne (a/k/a Karen Mangham) and second to Eva Rosenblitt (a/k/a Yael Barkay and/or Yael Heimer) No biological children from either of those first two marriages.

No need to apologize! We all have lives outside WikiTree, and need to step away from things from time to time. Whenever you have time again, we'd love to have your help. Otherwise, take care and best of luck with what you're working on!

In reply to your question regarding my testing 111 markers - no, it has not helped me genealogically. I have no matches at that level currently. I do have several at 67 markers however. Still, my best match is about 8 generations passed, and I only have my paternal line back 4 generations in my tree. -So it's peeking over the wall, but the wall remains for me to work at tearing down. Little by little. I am DNA geeky - and will test the BIG-Y within the year ahead. I am ok with contributing to the general good of Y-DNA knowledge as a whole. I'm expecting DNA things will look a whole lot different in 2024... a whole lot better I presume. I am an R1b - L21 so it's extremely active within that crowd, lot's of discoveries underway.
