I was born at an early age in the time between Japan's surrender in World War II and the signing of the surrender documents, an idea conceived Thanksgiving 1944. I have had a lucky, if uninteresting, life. I did not fulfill my own dreams: no Nobel Prize, no Ph.D. I have not dared enough.

I volunteer to do wiki genealogy.

My mother's family is from Sicily with a hint that it can be traced back to about 1400 in Sicily.

My father's family has many lines that go back to colonial times in Virginia and Maryland.
