Webmaster, Genealogy Sites, January 1997 to Present

These genealogy websites grew out of my hobby of researching my ancestry. As I became fairly good at searching the various websites that have family trees, friends and relatives asked me to give them suggestions for doing similar searches. Instead of telling them how to search for family trees at various sites, I decided to create the a website that made it easier to search for family trees. That website is the Family Tree Searcher. I enjoyed the programming and eventually created five websites. These websites help people who are just starting to research their genealogy on the internet.
