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 August 1, 2015. It has been very warm and very dry lately. Today we received some rain but it only lasted for a few minutes. We have had a good summer. My health has been good. Anna and I and some of the family spent 4 days in the Hershey, Pennsylvania area last month. We had a great time riding the steam train at Strasburg and buying chocolate at Hershey. We just about got flooded out by torrential rains at our campground but we survived it and had a great time. Today we celebrated my brother's 55th wedding anniversary. He and his wife were married when I was 15. I have not been very active in my genealogical searches lately. I would really like to come in contact with the person(s) in Winnipeg, Manitoba who has/have been searching my site for the last several months. I know we have distant cousins living there. 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.
