Lawerence, This message will be somewhat brief, I apologize. I am very busy with my business. I am the President and CEO of The American Corp. We own and operate the largest college funding business in the united states. We halp parents pay for college with the least out of pocket expense. We do this by utilizing Income and asset plannig, financial aid rules and regs, tax laws etc. We save the average client 2,500 dollars a year for college. We are headquartered in DC. I graduated in 2000 from the Univ of MD with dualmajors in Econ and Finance. Intend to puruse my MBA at Upenn or Harvard in about3-5 years. I was fortunnate to be in the right place at the right time. The business is growing so fast that I barely sleep. I stay extremely busy due to the massive expansion effort we are undergoing. I too believe that all Winkfield's are related. As far as I know my family orgins are ALbany, Georgia. My Grandmother is Lilly Winkfield and she had a brother by the Name of Rudolph Winkfield. She never married my grandfather, Vince Collier. Asa result my father kept his mother's maiden name--Winkfield. His name is Rudolph J. Winkfield born July 24, 1951 in ALbany GA. My father and cousin are the only winkfield's besides myself and my brother's who can carry on the Winkfield name from our side of the family. Tell you what, we gotta keep up the communication. My goal is by 2010 that I can be instrumental in contacting all the Winkfield's and having a lineage-family renunion. Only reason is, I believe we are related in some fashion, cousins maybe?
