Hi Martin, thanks for reaching out to me!  It's indeed a small world with our last name; I can only assume we're related froms somewhere back in the Plistocene era!

Seriously, my grandparents on my father's side came to the US from Germany back in the 20's; my father was born in Brooklyn, NY while my mother was an English 'war bride'.  Both are deceased.  My immediate family consists of a wife - no children - so I guess the 'bloodline' runs out at our end. 

It's nice to know I have a 'namesake' from down-under!

Cheers,

Doug

Martin, that's an UNUSUAL last name.  Could we be related somehow?
