tikira on Family Tree Circles
We are Wayne and Dianne Hoppe and have been researching our family history for over 20 years, and are also volunteers at our local Armidale Family History Group. We are lucky to have wonderful resources in Armidale, and make regular trips to NSW and QLD state archives. Our holidays are usually spent where our ancestors settled.
Some of the names we are researching are O'Brien, O'Neill, Heffernan (Southern Highlands, NSW area), Ritchie (Sutton Forest), Erhardt, Ernst, Steel,Springate, Hartwig, Hoppe, Geitz,(Darling Downs QLD area), Grob, Donnelly, Krauss, Knauf, Heffernan, Croskell,Styles, Craig, Schwed/Sattler(Glen Innes area). We are always keen to talk to others researching these families.
We are very lucky to be this generations caretakers of a lot of original family photo's, as well as copies we have collected over the years, on a lot of the lines we are researching.
It is our hope to add more "flesh" to our families "bones". We are always willing to share information and help others where possible.
Our genealogy motto is:
"Information shared will survive and grow"
