After his father's death in 2000, Charlie decided to research his father's Korean War service, eventually obtaining several of his missing war medals. This effort was the catalyst into genealogy and discovering his family tree - all the way back to its American beginnings. While tracing his family line, Charlie learned to navigate state and national archives, efficiently conduct online research, and utilize library systems to access genealogical information. His current focus is researching his wife's family tree.

Web Design

When the daily newspaper where he worked began its foray onto the Web, Charlie jumped at the chance to learn the emerging technology. Since then Charlie has taken courses in Web design, layout and development. Using common content management systems, Charlie has built dynamic personal and business websites. He is currently building his family's genealogy website.
