Genealogy We are interested in genealogy since we are both of Dutch ancestry. Our grandparents or great-grandparents came to the United States from the Netherlands in the mid 1850's. We now have our ancestry in both families back from 6 to 12 generations.
Art We enjoy art, and have become especially fond of the artists of the Hague School.
Elizabeth continues to sew and has done some beautiful quilts and pine needle baskets and has recently taken some beading classes.
Travel We like to travel and visit our daughters on the East Coast. After traveling on our own in Europe a number of times, we have taken four Rick Steves tours and five Grand Circle cruises.
Fractals In a previous life before retirement, Don taught mathematics and computer science at California State University, Los Angeles. During that time he worked on fractals and the related areas of chaos and artificial life.
