New England Roots of Natalie (Hobbs) Fix

Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research


In October of 1998 I got my first computer and thought it would be fun to see if my family was on the internet.
I began with a few names supplied by my father, Lester Milton Hobbs, and the "Hunt" was on.
With the help of kindred souls on the net I have been able to trace my HOBBS, HORTON, HARDEN, HARDING, WASHBURN lines for several hundred years.
Meeting distant and not so distant relatives, sharing what I've found and having them share with me has been a great joy.
