This site is dedicated to the preservation of Armstrong genealogy and family history. If you have fought enough battles for today, Mangerton Castle and the fellow border reivers who have preceded you since 30 August 1996, await your return.
This page is established as a home base for the fierce and powerful Armstrong Clan of the Scottish borderlands. In the early 17th century the Armstrongs lost their Scottish holdings and many left their homeland to scatter to several other nations around the world. Some emigrated to England and Northern Ireland and eventually to several other countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States.
This Web site actually predated the AG&HC and since I first activated it in November 1995, I have only sporatically added new content - life has conspired to get in the way of my genealogical hobby. I am currently working on restoring several more old photos that I recently came across, and hopefully this will get me back into the research and writing side as well. In the meantime, the following links show what I have done so far, and also provide some insight as to what I do in my "day job."
Bloodline - A History of the Bloodline of Martin
Armstrong of Willsborough, NY and Shoreham, VT.
This narrative history of my family, begins with our first known ancestor, Martin Armstrong, prior to the American Revolution, and follows the family through the generations and my branch to myself and my descendants.
Kennedy Space Center Home Page
I work at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) where I am the Public Web Manager responsible for KSC's public Web site which is made up of over 70,000 pages.
NASA Home Page, Missions Section
As part of the Agency's "One NASA" initiative, the NASA Home Page was totally redesigned and reorganized in early 2003. A few months later, I assumed responsibility for the Missions Section of the NASA Portal. All of the graphical, narrative, and video content of this Section is done by my Web team at the Kennedy Space Center.
NASA Direct! I also manage one of the very few Web Production Studios in the Federal Government. Our programming, known as "NASA Direct!" includes the production of all the video features in the KSC Home Page's Multimedia Gallery and in the Missions Section of the NASA Portal, as well as the production of original Web Broadcast programming for the launch of each of NASA's Space Shuttle and Expendable Launch Vehicle missions.
I have chosen not to add my site to the the many search engines out there, so it is something of a minor miracle that you have found your way here. Hopefully, you may even find something that catches you attention for a few moments...
