The Future of my websites

Gordon-Durrenberger Websites

After 40 years of working on my family history, I have decided to retire this project. However, I want to make this information available to anyone who can use it.My Gordon-Durrenberger database contains over 14,000 individuals. At my age, passing on this work is a concern so I want to share this work sooner than later.Three sharing options1. Order a digital copy on a USB drive
2. Use Family Search or Ancestry.com
3. Request a copy of my gedcom file.

About the Project

Family History Journey

The Start -1985I started this Family History Project in 1985. After both of my parents passed away, I realized how little I knew of my family origins. All that I knew was the information on a few funeral cards of deceased family members which my parents had saved over the years.In 1985 I entered that information into an MS-DOS genealogy program and that started a lifetime hobby. I have used several genealogy programs over the years and most recently, The Master Genealogist.About MeI was born and raised in Little Falls, Minnesota, graduated from Cal State-Northridge in 1970 with a BS in Finance, served in the Army in Alaska, became a CPA while working with Peat, Marwick in 1976, and worked most of my career as a Chief Financial Officer for companies in Alaska and Washington. I have been married to my wife, Susan, for over 30 years and have two wonderful children, Rachel and Darren, who are now grown adults.In ConclusionI feel privileged to have been able to have the time and resources to continue this effort for almost 40 years. I have learned much about my family history, more than I ever expected. I have met many new friends as a direct result of my websites. In many cases, these new friends have been valuable contributors in my efforts to document the family history.
