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 May 15 and it snowed today. Normally we have a high of +18C but today it only reached 6. We have had some warm weather but mostly it has been cool. This coming week we are going to reach +20. The fruit farmers will be very happy since the temperatures have been very cold overnight the last while. A lot of sowing has already been done but we need some warm days and nights now. Once again I would like to thank all those people who transcribe records and also those who have made their kwartierstaten available on-line and in magazines such as Ons Voorgeslacht. Keep up the good work. As you can see genealogy still occupies a lot of my time.
