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.

Hi, Robin, I'm a new member to WikiTree and to Southern Colonies Project. I added two resources (Creation of VA Counties and VA Atlas) on the US Southern Colonies VA Page, and hope to add more in the future as I research. Small world, we are also military (THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE) and you grew up at Falls Church, VA, historic home of my oldest ancestor, Gabriel Adams! Your Southern Colonies VA webpage with sources is great!!

Hi Robin,

You're one of the closest matches I've found on WikiTree - we're both descended from Lemuel Blanchard!

Pleased to meet you, cousin!

Nice bio on WikiTree, Robin. I see we are 8th cousins through your Grover ancestry. Also, thank you for your service to our country. :)

Thanks for the reply, Robin. I was just hoping you might have some sources I wasn't aware of -- but no problem! So as 12th cousin, does that mean I get to borrow money and not pay back?

It has been a pleasure being on the team with you.

I hope to see you again in 6 months for the Source-A-Thon. Again Thank you so very much

That'd be great - but you've met my goal already... I wanted everyone on Team Virginia to participate & you've done that now :D

Thanks for what you've done & TIA for what you might be able to squeeze in before midnight!

Hi Robin,

Thanks for finishing up the Ross Faris profile -- looks like I had forgotten to go back and update some of the links. Did you have any evidence to support the death date? The will was signed on 14 Dec, but there was no evidence that he died the same day (and FAG has him dying on 11 Dec before the will was signed!), and it wasn't proved until mid-January, so I had thought it better to leave it a bit open as simply Dec. Tom

Hi Robin! Give a holler in Team Virginia's G2G chat or on the team page if you need help how to get started (although I think most of the team may be going to bed soon... see links below for a 2nd G2G post for questions).

There's also a tutorial on the Help:Spring Clean-a-Thon page.

Cheers, Liz
