In My Family and Ancestors, Dieter R. Philippi expands on “parts missed and overlooked” in his 2009 autobiography, My Path Through Life from Europe to the USA. From memories of a confusing and tense childhood in Germany under the Hitler regime to happier adult years as a successful businessman in the United States, Philippi includes a detailed genealogical history dating back to 1792, along with family photographs.
“As well as I remember, I have given the most accurate and honest points during my long lifetime. All during my life, I felt that I had to help, assist, and give whenever possible, and in exchange, I myself have received much to make for a good and enjoyable life.”

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
