Howard has become an expert family historian, leveraging his academic skills and his high tech experiences to tell his own story and that of others. You can see some of his work published on

After his parents passed away, Howard began a journey to discover his own family roots. In the process, Howard documented not only the story of his own family and its path from the shtetl of Mlynov to the booming town of Baltimore, but in the process traced what became of all the other families (landsmen) from that same town.

The result has been a web site, hundreds of family trees developed, the reintroduction of third cousins, the discovery of unknown descendants, and the stories behind the journeys form Eastern Europe to America. Howard has written several hundred page family histories and has also leveraged video to tell their stories.
