About Me

Born and raised in the city of Albany, my wife and I moved to East Greenbush in 2002 with our two daughters. Since 1991 I work full time for National Grid. Previous to that I was a beer/soda delivery man for two now defunct beer distributors in the Capital District for five years.  In 1996 I returned to college at SUNY Albany, part-time at night, and began working on an undergrad in history and later graduated with a MA in history in 2005.

Always interested in history; especially my own family history/genealogy, I began tracing my family tree in 1980 as a middle school social studies project. My research continued on and off until 1989 when I was bitten by the genealogy bug again and worked on the tree and until I returned to night school in 1996. Genealogy for me completely ended because of work and college until I was bitten again in 2011 and I have been                                                                     diligently working on my tree ever since.

Genealogical associations that I belong to include;
Capital District Genealogical Society
National Genealogical Society
New England Historic Genealogical Society
New York Genealogical & Biographical Society
Troy Irish Genealogy Society

At some point I intend to work towards becoming a certified genealogist (CG).
Other historical interests include graveyard conservation and rehab; local and New York State history; and old homes/architecture.
