These pages highlight my siblings (Hinds), my wife's siblings (VanDam) and my stepchildren's families (Dobson).


The Geneology pages show the results of my research into family history.

The Hinds name can be traced back to New Jersey in the 1600's. A female line on my father's side can be traced back to John Lackland (King John of Robin Hood fame). My mother's family, Spence, can be unreliably traced to Robert deBruce in Scotland.


My wife's VanDam line came to this country from the Netherlands in the late 1800's. Other lines can be traced to Lady Godiva.
