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 almost mid-January. We finally got a significant snowfall last night, about 10 cm. It has also gotten cold. We had mild temperatures until about the fifth of January. 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.
