About Darrell

Author of ’22 STEPS IN RESEARCHING YOUR FAMILY TREE’, '38 FAMILY TREE RESEARCH RESOURCES' and 'NEW LEAVES' - Available on Amazon.

 

A little about how I got here and where I am going?

 

I was born in Korbecke, West Germany in October 1956 when my father was in the Canadian Army stationed in Soest, northern part of the country.

 

My father was posted back to Canada and I grew up as a kid on military bases with my two brothers and two sisters.  He retired from the military in 1972 and settled in Peterborough, Ontario rea where I finished my schooling.

 

On a dare with a couple of friends, I joined the Canadian Armed Forces as a cook in 1974 and progressed in the ranks until I retired in 2003 after 29 years. My military and cooking career was exciting and challenging taking me to various places and deployments around the globe with the Army, Air Force and the Navy. It was a lot of fun and something I am really proud of doing while serving my country.

 

In 2004, I went back to school in Peterborough, Ontario attending Sir Sanford Fleming College enrolling in the Computer Support Technician Program. Competing with younger people I strove to be the best I could, gaining and receiving respect from both the professors and fellow students. I had a thirst for knowledge and found the course studies educationally enlightening. I received a diploma and a permanent place on the ‘President’s Honour Roll 2005′, something I am very proud of achieving.

He has many hobbies such as playing guitar, woodworking, renovating, reading, collecting hockey memorabilia, reading and writing. Darrell is a forever devoted Toronto Maple Leafs fan.

 

After graduation I worked as a call centre representative. The field really wasn’t what I wanted to do. I wasn’t being challenged enough for what I wanted to do so I went back cooking in the food service industry where I worked with the Public Service with the Department of National Defence until I retired in 2015.

 

Shortly after I retired I helped in writing a book called “Tormented by Ghosts – True Life Experiences” by Lynda Bogert. The book is about Lynda’s personal experiences with the paranormal and what she endured over a thirty year period. Today, she has developed special medium and channeling abilities; and guides people to positively deal with the paranormal and communicates with spirits’ while passing on messages to loved ones. Lynda kind of reminds me of Theresa Caputo from the TV show ‘Long Island Medium”.  She can go anywhere and if she is getting any messages from spirit, she has to tell the person. Very uncanny ability if you don’t have any gifts like that.  There isn’t a day that goes by that she doesn’t experience something with the supernatural.

 

I did a lot of research during the writing of the book from the writing, designing, marketing and promoting. Inspired to write a book I began conjuring up an idea for a book myself. I leaned towards a paranormal/historical fiction book. I have always been fascinated in history especially the royal lineage of England. 

 

Researching my own family ancestry and now having some knowledge in the paranormal. I decided on writing about an unheralded Anglo-Saxon king named Eadred. Eadred is the grandson of “Alfred the Great‘ who was the pioneer of uniting all the Anglo-Saxons kingdoms in England during the 9th century. He did not live to see his vision and dream but it is documented that Eadred the future King of Wessex and all of England did achieve that feat.

 

"Wessex Reign“, a fictional chronicle of an Anglo-Saxon King’s supremacy for England and the lost written records of an unheralded king who should be regally honoured with respect. The book is still in the works and will be part of a trilogy series called the UNITED ENGLALAND SERIES.

 

I have many hobbies such as genealogy, reading, writing, playing guitar, woodworking, renovating and collecting hockey memorabilia. Darrell is a forever devoted Toronto Maple Leafs fan.

 

Writing and maintaining my genealogy is a full time hobby and keeps me very busy. After writing my three genealogy self-help books I have also kept busy with my other projects, the '22 Steps Podcast' based on my book and my family newletter called 'Gibbs Musings'.
