Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS), from the National Genealogical Society:
To reach a sound conclusion, we need to meet all five components of the GPS:
* Reasonably exhaustive research.
* Complete and accurate source citations.
* Thorough analysis and correlation.
* Resolution of conflicting evidence.
* Soundly written conclusion based on the strongest evidence.
Born and raised in San Diego, Bryan attended Clairemont High School, majored in Aeronautics at San Jose State University, and obtained a Master's Degree in Systems Management from the University of Southern California.
He worked at Lockheed Space Operations Company in Sunnyvale, California as a satellite controller. It was there he honed his software skills, and transitioned his career from Operations to Software Engineering, while still remaining vested in Aerospace.
Bryan has lived in Hawaii, Colorado, Arizona, and now Las Vegas, Nevada, where he works as a computer programmer, enjoying (almost!) every minute of writing mostly C++ code for gaming and scientific applications.
Bryan's WikiTree and genealogy interests include several early Colonial / Puritan Great Migration ancestors, the Egan lineage (Ireland), the McKibbens (originally from Ireland), and the Young lineage (Scotland).
He is happily single, with no clear plans to change that anytime soon.
It should be noted for the genealogical record that my paternal surname should have been Woerner, except for an NPE (my own adoption at birth), and that I carry the Woerner y-DNA.
Bryan is 21 degrees from Michael Collins, 24 degrees from Judith Resnik, 24 degrees from Ellison Onizuka, 35 degrees from Michael Phillip Anderson, 24 degrees from Sally Ride, 30 degrees from Wubbo Johannes Ockels, 24 degrees from Neil Armstrong, 22 degrees from Virgil Grissom, 27 degrees from Christa McAuliffe, 22 degrees from Dick Scobee, 24 degrees from Edward White and 27 degrees from Frances Piercy-Reins on our single family tree.
