I have been collecting family history sporadically since junior high school. Before switching to Reunion, I used Family Tree Maker to publish a family tree in 1996 that listed 962 relatives. I studied history at Albert-Ludwigs-Universitaet, Freiburg, Germany, and still speak German fluently. I was director of the Anthony Schools in Foster City and Menlo Park, California, and was adjunct professor of Management Information Systems at Menlo College for twenty years. I live in Pacifica, California, and design educational software.
