His avocation during this 30 year career, was to focus on a variety of historical projects:  Spent a number of years working as a docent and archaeological staffer at Plimoth Plantation, restored their 1856 Farmhouse home on Cape Cod, and created a geneaological study of his mother's family. -(Czyka) on site in Poland. and a similar study of his father's Irish (Dunn) roots in Dublin (18th century) and English roots (Fones) in Devonshire (16th century). His first book was a visual summary of this research using family records, pictures and antiques.
