I am married to a wonderful and sweet wife, Svitlana, who is from Ukraine and we have a beautiful daughter, Lydia Elizabeth. I have worked in the funeral business since 1988 and thoroughly enjoy researching my family roots.

I am sorry for not getting any pictures of the Self reunion that was held on September 17th loaded to this site yet. To be perfectly honest, I have not had the time to scan the pictures, what few I have, and get them placed for all of you to see. John Henegar took a few and sent me those on a cd, but I need to put names with those pictures too before loading them. I promise to get them on here as soon as possible. Be patient.
