This is my first post and I am quite excited about finally getting this up and running. Both of my parents have inspired me to go as far as I have with our family history. It is very time consuming but on the other hand, very addictive and extremely satisfying. I want to share all that I have acquired over the years and expand on my “extended family” around the world.
I dedicate this site to:
(a) my Mom for starting the whole “family history thing” and handing over her findings to me in 1993 and
(b) my Dad for his fantastic memory and stories about his family. I still kick myself for not having “picked your brain” more than I did. Thank you for your patience with me. Rest in peace (12 July 2010).
Dad, I’m always finding new stuff all the time and I wish you could see it all – probably make your hair (what you have left) stand on end. These Hobinstocks of yours always seemed to be getting themselves into trouble….
