I grew up in Niagara Falls, New York, graduated from Cornell University in 1964, and after almost 40 years I retired from the construction industry in 2003. I am currently 71 years old. My wife and I moved to Tampa, Florida with our family in 1983. We currently have a home in Estero, Florida and a summer home in Blue Ridge, Georgia.
Obviously one of my favorite hobbies is genealogy. I maintain a family tree on Ancestry.com with almost 12,000 names including many of my ancestors who were early settlers along the Connecticut River plus five direct ancestors who were passengers on the Mayflower. Feel free to include my email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – as I would love to hear from any of your readers especially if they are “cousins.” I appreciate hearing from you. It inspires me to begin another chapter.
