  • DNA testing now expanding among amateur genealogists

    Anyone paying attention to the news in recent weeks has heard how DNA testing has been used to solve a four-decades-old case involving a serial killer and serial rapist who terrorized residents in California in the 1970s and 1980s.

    I expect that it will, someday, be made into a movie – it’s just that intriguing.

  • Are you saving enough for retirement?

    I often get questions from folks asking how much they need to save to be able to retire one day. In my experience most employees and business owners have no idea how much they need to retire and how much they need to maintain their current lifestyle in retirement. More concerning, many of them never seek professional advice to help them answer this question.
