Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Springfield, MA in 1952, for the past 35 years I have been in the retail automobile business managing at all levels, consulting and training in both sales and service. I have three children, 2 sons and a daughter ages 28, 31 and 34. My first grandchild was born December 1, 2010! Another generation to follow!

On September 22, 2007, I married my second wife, Karen J (Thurber) Murphy. Karen is the widow of Wayne E Murphy (1952-2001/Memorial #37248763) and has 2 children, a son age 25 and a daughter age 22.

My first exposure to genealogy was in 1969 when a cousin sent me a brief description of 4 generations of my paternal lines. I was intrigued at the time, but work, marriage, kids and life in general were my priorities for quite a while. I really didn't start concentrating on genealogy as a hobby until about 1998. I'll be starting and on-line course through Boston University to become a Certified Genealogist which I should be able to complete by the spring of 2013.

Contact me anytime with corrections, links, transfers (according to policy) or adding information. I will respond as quickly as is reasonable.

Since 2008, I have been collaborating with John P O'Connor at the Museum of Springfield History where we have uploaded over 26,000 records and thousands of photographs.

I offer family research services as well as classes in introductory through advanced genealogical research through my website

Currently, I am a member of several genealogical associations including the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Association of Professional Genealogists, Massachusetts Genealogical Council, Western Massachusetts Genealogy Association and others.

Dave, Thank you so much for the transfer! Now I won't have to bother you with any more editing additions I find - I have discovered that some people don't appreciate having to add info. You are doing such great work on this site. I was wondering if you took the genealogy course at Boston University since I was also considering this and would really appreciate your input. Kim
