John Marshall:

John’s interest in DNA began many years ago when he started wondering if his father was an only child (like he was). Digging out some old records from his “aunt”, John quickly jumped on the DNA bandwagon with an Ancestry autosomal DNA test, quickly followed by a Family Tree YDNA test.  Mostly self-taught, John enjoys sharing information to enable others to jump-start their genealogy research.  John is a 20-year US Air Force veteran and currently works for Boeing. He and his wife Darlene live in Shalimar Florida.
