I was born in Washington, DC and grew up in the suburb of Falls Church, VA, which, in uniquely Virginia fashion, was actually Fairfax County. I was graduated from George C Marshall High School in 1975, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College in 1979, and then spent 6 years in the United States Air Force.

I stumbled into genealogy by way of sorting through my mother's house full of stuff after she died in December 2012. My cousin and I found volumes of old photographs of our grandparents, great-grandparents, and even great GREAT-grandparents, all of which has been amazing, humbling, and fascinating. How odd to see our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents in their youthful years. How grand to see them having fun, enjoying life, and their families. How interesting to see how they changed over the years as their children grew, had their own children, and on it goes . . .

As a history major, and a student of history, I also enjoy seeing how my family's lives interacted with the historical contexts of the days in which they lived, some of whom I've been able to trace to colonial times, many through Civil War times, and the majority through major events of the 20th century. One thing I can say about my family - we are a patriotic bunch. Every generation of both sides of my family has had more than one family member representing the family in service to this wonderful country of ours.

I invite you along the journey of discovering my family - I have certainly found it fascinating, and I enjoy those I meet along the way. I find it helps me feel connected to something, this greater picture of family, and it is even more interesting to meet strangers with similar interests and tangential connections - and sometimes, even family I never knew about! So, welcome to my journey through family, and let me know if I can help you with yours!

Followed Tags
Robin is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Several ancestors on my mother's side were involved in the American Revolution. Mostly Pikes.
My last name is German; the man who started the American branch was my 3rd great-grandfather.
My family name. Not terribly common, but you would be surprised how many there are spread throughout the USA. There are even 2 other Robin Kabrich's
A common alternate of the Kabrich surname. The name is pronounced as it was a "k," so appears that way in many official documents. Some families simply started using this version of the name.
I have many many Pike ancestors from Maine. And Dillinghams. And Libbys. And Mitchells.
Involved in several sub-projects
Several ancestors had "musician" or "bugler" as rank in military records. And I was in the Air Force band!
I am descended from John Pike, who immigrated to this country in 1635. Our line of Pikes retained the Pike name up until my Great Grandfather.
I like to edit profiles when I see errors, I can't help myself. I also enjoy researching interesting people.
I'm a lifelong resident of Virginia, where most of the war was fought. I have both maternal and paternal ancestors who were involved. Confederates and Union soldiers are well represented.
I love history, especially of the US. I've lived in Virginia most of my life, and a lot of US history happened right here.
Lifelong resident of one of the original colonies, but most of my ancestors this far back lived in New England.
I'm a lifelong resident, but I still find out things I never knew.
Zebulon Pike was a 6th cousin. I'm pretty sure there are other ancestors who participated; I still have to find them.
My father, my uncle, and their first cousin were all in the Army during the war. There are quite a few more family members who also served, and I am trying to chronicle the Kabrich presence in this war.

Thank you Robin for your message on the KIA page. I will see if I can find the two profiles today and correct them on the table Terry

Thanks for the note, Robin.

We had some problems getting the monthly tracker to work on the first; it is fixed now so you can use it when you want.

For the Sprints, registering once ever is all it takes for me to keep a yearly tally for you. You would only need to register on the weekly thread in weeks that you wanted to be eligible for the weekly winner badge.

Either way, you are sourcing and that makes a stronger WikiTree. In the end, that is the goal of us all. Thanks!

Robin that bio about Sylvanus Pike was from Chapman Bros, Portrait and Biographical record of Kalamazoo, Allegan and Van Buren counties Michigan... published 1895 p. 578

I noted the source on Pike-1902 as Jill likely found it on that paysite notorious for poor documentation.
