My name is Anthony Hofstee.
I was born in the Netherlands and moved to Canada at age 5. My parents and my
three brothers came to Canada to have a better future. In this my parents had
success as all four sons did very well for themselves. Before I retired I was a High School teacher of
French and occasionally German. My hobbies include music, stamp collecting and
genealogy. My wife and I
and all four of our children enjoy music. However my
passion is genealogy. For over 30 years I have done extensive research on my wife's family (Neef) and
also on my own. At present I am helping several people with their family search
as well. That means a lot of the families listed below are not related to me except perhaps in the 23rd generation or further back.
It is now November. The weather is cold and wet today. We have even had a couple of snowflakes. I hope we don't get too much snow yet. Halloween was a great success. We had over 150 people at the door even though it rained all evening. I am still working hard on my genealogies and have found lots of new material. It is very important that we check the records we put on-line.
