  • Welcome to the Simpson, Marnoch, Hopper, and Battist site!! I have been researching our family history for over 2 years now.

A Genealogist`s Life... You don`t understand why I jump out of bed And don`t go to sleep until 3am instead. Why should I waste my time in bed fast asleep? When I can search for old ancestors who sailed the ocean deep. Need to go to the old cemetery up on the hill To record names and dates of family there still. Found various sources, all over this land People from Nova Scotia to St. Andrews - lending a hand. Got an email from Scotland `come search the records here` Can`t get there yet, maybe some year... Do you have this census? This record? This name? Not another brick wall ? I`m about to go insane. Mothers of sixteen children? Are you whacked? They didn`t have cable back then - that`s a fact! I don`t see how anyone could find genealogy a bore To study the life of those who have gone on before. A thousand years from now, who will ever know? If I washed or ironed - or made the bathroom glow? Because their dear old ancestor left for them to see, Not clean clothes and dishes, but a detailed family tree. - Kelly Hughes, 2003 `Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That`s why we call it the present` - Babatunde Olatunji
