My name is Gary Perlman and I'm a retired software developer volunteering at the Maimonides Geriatric Centre, helping residents with their family trees.

Keep in mind that it is actually me, Gary Perlman, working for your relative, and not your relative. I set up the account so that mail goes to an email I set up so I can manage the tree. Someday, someone in the family may take over the account, but for now, it's a convenience. For a description of what I do for the residents, see
