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 the beginning of January 2017. We are having very cold weather (-10 was the high today, -20 tonight). We have not had a lot of snow. Next week we are expecting warm weather again and the little snow we have on the ground will disappear again. We had a great Christmas and New Year's Eve. Everyone is still busy with work. We are very blessed that all our four children and our one grandson have steady jobs. 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.
