One way or another, John has spent the majority of his adult life serving others.
Professionally, his jobs have been in the service industry helping people solve technical problems.
Privately, he has devoted a lot of his time working with genealogical societies like Austin Genealogical Society and Williamson County Genealogical Society, serving on Educational Committees and on the Board of Directors of several from time-to-time.
As founder of the Austin Genealogy Special Interest Group (AustinGenSIG), a 10+ year old organization that promotes the network approach of genealogical education, he strives to help people stay on top of the ever-expanding field of genealogical research.
He has volunteered at the Austin History Center, the Austin Public Library (currently) and currently teaches two Genealogy classes ("Track your Family Tree") a month at the Milwood branch of the Austin Public library and an Excel class at the downtown location.
Currently he is the Technical Coordinator for Lifetime Learning Institute and has taught the Genealogy Research Workshop class series for the last several years.
He also serves on the Board of Directors at Williamson County Genealogical Society as President and is their Educational Chairman.
In a nutshell, John’s passion is sharing want he knows by teaching others; and learning from them in the process. Everyone has something to share!
He can help with:
- Computers and programs
- Files and Data
- Working with pictures, text and files on the internet
- Scanning techniques
- Family Trees
- Photographing, on location or in-house.
- Research strategy, techniques or advice.
I can also offer research assistance and help locating and obtaining records onsight at courthouses, libraries or other record repositories.
