"I have no Life Outside of Genealogy Research, and I do this for an Unpaid Living"
quotes by D.R. "Doc" Young
"On the Trail of My Ancestors"
This site is a tribute to my Grandmother Thelma Ferne Perry (Pereira Cardozo) I began my Research Journey August 1992. My father who I met for the first time at age 20, unbeknownst to me having been born with the last name of Young, nor did I know my Fathers Name or what he may looked like. It was not until 1994, when I learned about my father through genealogy research of his actual birth name, Newton Richard Begnal (1924-1995).
This site is based on a True Story about non-fictional characters with the following surnames and of surname variation in spelling, records indexing and on actual documents found.
Much of this site is of my personal experiences and careers dating back to 1966. My background is 24+ years in the Fire Service, on my days off while a Fire Fighter, I was a professional wedding photographer Young Photography (1983-1992).
Upon leaving the Fire Service in 1996 for medical reasons, I started a part time business "Computer First Aid Services" and have computer experience dating back to 1983.
In 1997, I worked part-time at the Desert View Funeral Home & Memorial Park, as a Mortuary Service Representative and I then began a 3 yr career for an International Correction Corporation as a Fire & Safety Officer/Sergeant, until my permanent disability in Apr 2000.
I might be considered an "Serendipitist", since I have donated my time to Genealogy Research & Assistance, helping others with their Lineage, especially after 18 years of my research, I ran into a few stone & block walls of my own. I am both a person who Searches, to find something seeking carefully and thoroughly, whereas a Researcher is the systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources in order to establish facts and reach new conclusions.
My approach to Genealogy Research is an iterative one, both in process using computers and methodically, thinking outside of the box...I tend to be expeditious and can or may be overwhelming in how much information I may find in a short time. Assisting you, may take down a block wall or two.
I am online 8-16 hours x 365 days, sometimes my day begins between 0200-0500 hrs...I maybe able to respond within minutes to a couple hours, usually after 7 a.m., depending on my research load, or if I have household chores to tend to, and time of night I may not be online. I am here 24/7.
"Paying it Forward" by helping others is my main interest...when I research your Ancestor, its as if I am looking for my own ancestors, utilizing years of experience and networking, I am able to accomplish much in a short time.
I grew up without siblings, aunt/uncles & cousins, only my mother and Grandmother Toni until age 15...when I began to blaze my trail in life...through Genealogy Research, I know the feeling, the importance of family and connecting to the past, cousin's, nieces and even other parents I have united with their biological children for the first time since their birth, or separation at a young age.
I hope you find my Genealogy Service Useful and Educational, and of other areas of of this site to be very Informational.
