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.

Randy Seaver and the Kenyon Ancestry, thank you for the comment on the wife of John Kenyon (will proven 12 Jun 1732 (Kenyon-1162). There is one Kenyon Family in American, name altered in many ways. Here is a piece of history: Roswell Pettibone Flower 1835-1899 was 30th Governor of New York, also the protege of Henry Keep 1818-1869, President of New York Central Railroad. Henry Keep named in will, sister Mary Keep 1813-1883, the wife of Wanton W. Kenyon 1812-1897.

The J P Taylor Mansion in Jefferson County, NY is historical, be sure to make it part of your research. Be sure to research Sherman Ancestry and links to Kenyon, Mumford, Spencer, Pendleton, and Stone Families. General T. Sherman who ravaged the South during the Civil War is of this ancestry,

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.
