The Tancsa Page

Strange name eh ? This page is for any and all members of the Tancsa family tree. So, who are you ? If you did a search on the web, you probably came across a lot of references to me due to my years of participation on the Internet. So, if you are a Tancsa, drop me a line. This web site is rather boring right now, as I am sadly not artistically inclined. However, if you need some programming or computer networking, I am your boy.

An equally interesting and unique name was my partner's, Kathleen McSpurren who I sadly lost to duodenal cancer, July 29th, 2013 after 25.5 wonderful years together. I think of her every day. See
It was a pretty rough time for her (obviously) and me. We wrote about our time with cancer here In The Cancer Bubble
