I have been interested in Genealogy and Local History since the mid-70s, having served as President of the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research, Inc, Oakland County Genealogical Society and Calhoun County Genealogical Society. I have been the index editor of the DSGR Magazine since 1994 and the current Commander of Camp 22 (Marshall, MI) Sons of Union Veterans.
I have taught genealogical classes and presented talks to various local and national Societies.
