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 7, Legacy Family Tree 9 and Family Tree Maker 2017. My research into my own ancestors, my wife's ancestors, my cousins ancestors, the Seaver surname, and several other surnames, have resulted in a database of about 50,000 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 Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog ([3]) is the blog of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society.

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) ([4])
  • San Diego Genealogicalk Society (SDGS) ([5])
  • Chula Vista Genealogical Society (CVGS) ([6])

In my spare time, I like to read historical novels and mysteries, and to watch the San Diego Padres baseball team, the San Diego/now LA 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! So sorry I gave the wrong name it should have been Cheevers, not Barron.

Here is what I found.

Genealogical Publishing Co.; Baltimore, MD, USA; Volume Title: Third Supplement to Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700.

Name Elizabeth Harwood Maiden Name Cheevers Gender Female Baptism Date 1639 Marriage Date About 1665 Death Year 1715 Spouse Nataniel Harwood

Do you think this may be the right one? I downloaded the image but I do not know how to put it in here.

Hi Randy,

I saw your note about the American Kenyons book. Interesting about its accuracy. Can you give me more information about the Kenyon group you spoke of? My family has Kenyons in it and I 'd like to have accurate info. Thank you,

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.
