The Hout Family Archives exists to assist all family members and associated family lines worldwide to: discover and preserve our historical past, report current events and ongoing contributions, develop and expand current family ties.

Fascinated with genealogy and history since I was a kid, I’ve been digging around in my own ancestry backyard for decades and doing it professionally since January of 2015.

I love the detective work ~ the sleuthing ~ involved in genealogy research.
