Steve is Past President of the Ontario Genealogical Society, Chair of the Niagara Peninsula Branch since 2009 and Past Chair of the OGS Technical Support and Innovation Committee (TSIC). Along with Genealogy, I also sit on other Registered Charity Boards across the Province.

He has been a OGS member since 2008 and resides in St. Catharines with his wife and young adult children. As a Family Historian and a Canadian with a 25-year career in IT Management, he has a desire to preserve the data to the next generation for all those researching this very vast northern country.

Steve’s passion and enthusiasm for genealogy and the concept of paying it forward has brought together many groups for the benefit of family history, building bridges and meeting new people.

Supporting “Boots on the Ground” has been been a learned passion as we discover new ways using technology to reach out and support the Family History Community but also assist local Genealogy Groups remain relevant in todays ever changing tech world.

With many opportunities to speak at the Local Society Level, I find it entertaining to myself and the audience to be engaged as we both learn about the wonderful world of genealogy.
