I don't know if any of you remember that I started a Hobson Family web page to record information about my family. Yesterday someone visited this blog and left a comment asking me to contact him because he is also a direct descendant of my great-grandfather. This chap lives in Ohio and has been doing genealogical research for five years. He apparently entered some data into Google and my page popped up in first position. It's nice to find a previously unknown branch of the family tree and the cousin (I presume he's a cousin or something like that) has already contributed details which I did not have. I love the computer age!
