After 21 years in the Air Force he moved to Ft Collins in 1992. After a career was in technology working in electronics, computers, and managing large computer security programs Glenn retired in 2016.
Most of his ancestors came to colonial America from western Europe and the UK. Over the past 300 plus years his ancestors migrated west through Ohio, Indiana, and Iowa to homestead in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado.
Glenn has combined technology and genealogy for over 30 years. He started doing genealogy about 1983, when he was stationed near Washington DC learning genealogy in the Library of Congress, National Archives, DAR library, and Suitland Records center. He has researched in numerous state, county, and local facilities throughout the mid-west.
His current focus is on genetic genealogy. He took his first DNA test in 2006. He now manages DNA tests with four testing companies for over 25 different family members. He has attended many presentations on genetic genealogy including Roots Tech 2016 and 2017 and local Genealogical societies. He completed the DNA Boot Camp: Practical Applications at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January 2017.
He currently leads the monthly DNA study group for the Larimer County Genealogical Society. He has also got involved with unknown parentage searches and has helped an adoptee find her birth mother and a Vietnam “war baby” find her father.
