Helping genealogy researchers to use and understand new technologies

I give presentations, webinars and classes throughout the year on a wide variety of subjects concerning computers and genealogy. I am the Research Director for the Pennington Research Association. I manage the websites and blogs for non-profit organizations.

I have an AS Degree in Administration of Justice from Marin Community College and a BS Degree in Administration of Justice from Golden Gate University.

I am a retired Captain from the San Rafael Police Department. I retired in 1999 after serving 32 years. While there I managed several different sections including Investigations, Patrol and Information Services (radio, communications and technology).

I started my own consulting business in 1999 and offer computer services to small business owners and to individuals. I provide training to groups and individuals for specific genealogy software programs. I provide training on how to use computer and Internet technology as well as tips and tricks to help with your genealogy research.
