Randy's Home Page
This obligatory description is here to help ensure my page is properly indexed by search engines. You see, they want to see all the key words appear in both meta tags (which you don't normally see) and the actual text of the page. Seems there were a lot of sites with questionable ethics that would include every conceivable subject in their meta tags regardless of the actual content. A search of almost any subject would result in that web site popping up. Now most search engines qualify their indexes by ensuring the content matches the tags or even drawing out their information from the content. See if YOU can spot those key words here!
My primary hobby is cars. Although I have built and modified several, my pride and joy is my 1934 Ford 3 window coupe, built to resemble a hotrod from the 50s. This was a ground up project that took about 20 years from the time my brother and I acquired the car until it was completed. It took about 7 years of actual construction. The car features a stepped on 1947 Ford Flathead, all steal body, original boxed frame with Corvette rear and dropped I-beam front axel.
My next major project will be the ground up rebuilding of my 1950 Ford Woody station wagon. Plans call for all modern drive train and interior while keeping the "surf mobile" look of the 60s. Until I can get to that I spend my car time working on 1962 Ranchero that my dad purchased new.
My second love is scuba diving. Although most of my dives have taken place in Laguna Beach and Catalina in southern California, I have also had the good fortune of making multiple dive trips to Hawaii and Cozumel. In February 2003 I again traveled to Cozumel and in November 2002 I went on a dive vacation to Marlin Bay Resort on the island of Beqa in Fiji. You can view pictures of many of my dive trips on these pages.
Genealogy consumes any time I have left. My main family names are Morford, DeVoe, Burton, Grimes, Robinson and Thompson but my gedcom files include many more. The locations I am interested in are mainly the city of Lebanon in Red Willow county, Nebraska and the city of Gallatin in Daviess county, Missouri. I am looking for more information on my great-grandfather Andrew Jackson Morford, aka AJ Morford and Jack Morford but I am also looking for any information on Elmore DeVoe.
