I was born in 1959 in Pasadena, California. My childhood was peripatetic and now I live in London. I am married to a lady from Hong Kong and we have three children. By profession I am a geologist.
I am a proud American whose ancestors can be divided into fourths:
1. The Quakers. Pre-1700 arrivals in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, later moving to Indiana. My paternal grandfather
2. The Louisianians. Acadians and others descended from the earliest ships arriving in Nova Scotia in 1610. Plantation builders, lawyers, doctors. My paternal grandmother
3. The late-comers. Poor farmers arriving in the 1860s from Scotland and Germany. My maternal grandfather
4. The Great Migration ancestors. Puritan arrivals on the Mayflower and Governor Winthrop's fleet. My maternal grandmother
My interests in genealogy cover all of the above and more.
