|YOUNG FAMILY WEBSITE
I was born in Ontario, Canada, raised in the Province of Quebec, and moved back to my ancestral home of Haldimand
County in the 1970s. Here, in an 1865 fieldstone farmhouse near Hagersville, my three children grew up residing only
minutes away from their paternal grandparents in South Cayuga. Weekends were spent at the family cottage in the
Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario.
My educational background is as follows: I have a B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology from Concordia University in Montreal; an
M.A. in Psychology from the University of Guelph; and was granted a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences from McMaster
University in Hamilton, Ontario.
Professionally, in addition to being a Medical Scientist, I am also a Registered Psychologist. I began my career as a
neuropsychologist in a psychiatric hospital and an institution for the criminally insane. Eventually I opened a private
practice and specialized in forensic cases which required testifying in Court as an expert witness - largely in
custody and access as well as child abuse matters. In addition I worked at Mohawk College in Hamilton as a
teacher until the mid 1990s, when I retired and closed my private practice. I then emigrated to the United States,
working first as a Learning Disabilities Specialist at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California. I was a tenured
faculty member at East Los Angeles College, teaching courses ranging from introductory psychology to
psychopharmacology, but am now retired.
As to interests, in days gone by I was very involved in outdoor pursuits such as skiing (snow and water), boating,
snowmobiling, hiking - as well as restoration of the home and cottage. Since 1974 I have been deeply immersed in
climbing the family tree and in the 1980s I became a Certified Genealogist. I also joined the Ontario Genealogical
Society and the United Empire Loyalist's Association of Canada (being a descendant of Lt. John Young of the Six
Nations Indian Department and his Mohawk Six Nations wife Catharine Hill). My present interests have largely been
in connection with DNA (population genetics) and grandchildren (four born in 2006 alone).
My wife Margaret and I split our time between homes near Seal Beach, California, and Caledonia, Ontario - with travel
to Hawaii, Italy, Vegas and wherever as circumstances permit.
1) Publications: Research and publications in the fields of psychology, biography, genealogy, history, archaeology,
anthropology, and Native studies. Present efforts are focused on DNA.
2) Genealogy: In addition to researching family history (e.g., FAUX, WILLIAMSON, AND YOUNG families), have
specialized in Native North American genealogy - particularly the Six Nations people of Upstate New York, and Ontario,
Canada. A related project involved a 35 year effort to research the site, then work to restore the abandoned YOUNG
TRACT BURYING GROUND.
3) DNA: At present am conducting studies of Y chromosome DNA of anyone with the surname FAUX; and exploring
both Y and mt DNA of those whose family originated in the SHETLAND ISLANDS. Other interests include tracing the
origins of the Cimbri of Denmark and exploring the Central Asian - Scandinavian link, as well as Y-DNA haplogroup
R-U152; an autosomal study of the Young family; and Native American X-chromosome research.
