I am a native San Diegan, a graduate of San Diego High School (1961), of San Diego State University (1966, Bachelor of Science Aeronautical Engineering), and a retired aerospace engineer (Rohr Industries 967-1997, Goodrich 1997-2002).

My wife (Angel Linda) and I have two lovely daughters, and four darling grandchildren. We love to visit them and have them visit us. Angel Linda and I love to travel to visit friends and relatives, to sightsee, to cruise or to do genealogy. Our travels have taken us all over the USA, to England and Scandinavia.

I started pursuing genealogy research in 1988 because I wanted a new avocation, and it quickly turned into an addiction. I started a yearly family newsletter which is now 16 pages sent each Christmas to the extended family (children, siblings, cousins, whether they want it or not!). By 1992 I was active on the Prodigy message boards, and have been online ever since.

I started using Family Tree Maker genealogy software in 1995, and now use RootsMagic 4, Legacy Family Tree 7 and Family Tree Maker 2011. My research into my own ancestors, mty wife's ancestors, my cousins ancestors, the Seaver surname, and several other surnames, have resulted in a database of about 40,000 persons.

I write quite a bit now.

  • The Genea-Musings blog ([1]) features personal research, software and website reviews, and genealogy news and opinion.
  • The Geneaholic blog ([2]) is a daily genealogy journal.
  • The South San Diego County Graveyard Rabbit blog ([3]) is about San diego area cemeteries
  • The Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog ([4]) is the blog of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society.
  • The "Genealogy 2.0" column in the Federation of Genealogical Socieites (FGS) FORUM magazine ([www.fgs.org]).

I also speak regularly on genealogical topics to Southern California area genealogical societies, and teach the 4-session "Beginning Computer Genealogy" course (8 hours) at the San diego OASIS adult education center.

My genealogical society memberships include:

  • National Genealogical Society ([www.ngsgenealogy.org])
  • New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) ([5])
  • San Diego Genealogicalk Society (SDGS) ([6])
  • Computer Genealogy society of San Diego (CGSSD) ([7])
  • Chula Vista Genealogical Society (CVGS) ([8])

In my spare time, I like to read historical novels and mysteries, and to watch the San Diego Padres baseball team, the San Diego Chargers NFL team, and the San diego State Aztecs teams on television. We have a 20-game season ticket package to the Padres.

Hi, Randy. I figured we were related as I seem to run across you at every turn. The relationship finder tells me that we are fifth cousins, twice removed.

Randy, I am working on some changes for Joseph White-2315 that the new Error Report revealed. See my notes and sources on the page. It is a work in progress. Joseph White is my 6th ggrandfather.

Thank you Randy. I know your work on our Seaver line will of be of great help to my research.

No, what I am saying is that the sources listed on Tripp-73 are not specifically for that person. They were ALL the sources in a 2001 GEDCOM file that included Tripp-73 and many more persons. Many of the sources listed are for records well after Tripp-73 died.

Oh, so what you're saying is that since the sources for Tripp-73 are old that they don't matter? They mattered to someone who did the work to verify Martha's life.

Hi Randy. John Savage is our 16th great grandfather making us 17th cousins with 125 common ancestors. I looked you up after I found your musings blog when googling "descended from William the Conquerer". Henry III is also my 23rd great grandfather. I'm new to wikitree and genealogy as a whole but I'll be adding more info all the time. I'm an entrepreneur in Philadelphia. Take care.
