My name is Carlos A. Heuser.
I live in Porto Alegre, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, the
southmost state in Brazil. I'm a retired Computer Science professor at
the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, in Porto Alegre.
Appart from being a genealogist I am also
a passionate photographer.
The basis of this site is
a software written by Darrin Lythgoe in PHP that manages a MySQL database that
contains the family trees.
I received the Benckes and Diefenthaelers family trees
as MS Word files containing descendancy reports in textual format each one in a different format.
to transform them into GEDCOM I wrote two PERL scripts.
