Family History

I have written two books on my family's genealogy — the Dastugue-Morano Family of New Orleans and the Taylor-Smith-Staehling-Hilderbrand Family. I'm currently working on converting these books into digital form and will sell them at online bookstores soon. In the meantime, here are some photos of my family members. For genealogy questions, please email me at
