Welcome to our Family Site!

Updated 01/29/2022

Thanks for visiting! We live in the Chicago area of Illinois.   Alfred is a computer programmer at Northrop Grumman, a defense contractor. Cyndi is ruler of our estate, which currently consists primarily of our eleven children: Nathan, Ruth, Elisabeth, Peter, Mary, Esther, Susanna Joy, Timothy, Rachel, Joanna, and Benjamin.  We are in fellowship with the believers who gather in the Spring Creek Gospel Hall (commonly known as Plymouth Brethren), which is a great privilege. We home school through the Advanced Training Institute of America (ATI), a program which we deeply appreciate. Jesus Christ is Lord of all . . . and of our home!

I have done some on-line research into the origin of the family name. In the process I have come in contact with Corduans all over the world. For a page of information, pictures, and links related to CORDUAN, see Corduan Family History .

Alfred's Personal Ponderings

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord!" Romans 6:23 Friend, you and I will soon meet in eternity, if we never meet on this earth. There is a God in heaven who will call into account all of our deeds on that day. He will not overlook or forget one sin - If you do not know Him as your heavenly Father, through faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, you will face certain judgment for all eternity. If you make sure of nothing else in this life, make sure of eternity.

God bless you!

There is an older video of us singing "Count the Cost" [the venue was a "Music Night" with fellow home schoolers.  This searching song was written by a young lady, Deborah Marshall (later Wells), of the singing John Marshall Family, who later left comforts and family to be a missionary in New Guinea] . . . the file is quite large [19MB] so prepare to be patient if you click.  Audio only of the family singing "Saved by Grace".  We are absolutely not professionals!  But we do very  much enjoy singing as a family.

A short video of Susanna doing what she does best, sliding down the banister.  A slide show [large file - 16MB] of a day trip to Death Valley we took in early 2006.
