Seeking information regarding Robert Stobie
« on: Saturday 19 October 13 09:43 BST (UK) »
Thanks to several rootschat members I now have a sketchy outline of my father. Can anyone help fill in the blanks. Robert Stobie, born 1900 Kirkaldy, Fife. Went to New Zealand 1902. Died 1976 in Thirsk, Yorkshire. Widowed in 1947 (wife ellen). Served in the New Zealand force in Greece in 1941. Wounded December 1941.
Lived in York, England after the war but there my info runs out.

Hi there

Iíve been doing some research into my great grandfather, George Stobie who came out to NZ in early 1900s.  And through our research and the information in your posts on this forum; I believe you are related to Georgeís son, Robert Stobie.

Would be interested in getting in touch and seeing what info you have, and happy to pass on our info.

Thanks
Leanne (nťe Stobie). NZ

Hello,

Sorry for the delay in replying! Yours is the first reply since I posted my information years ago consequently the email got missed. That and my being old.
I have been trying to research the Stobie family on and off for five or six years and have various bits of information which might be of interest to you. I would like to tell you the whole story but would prefer to do so privately if possible. Can you work the Personal Message thing? I just tried and failed miserably.
Let me know what you think.
Best wishes, R.

The PM system works after the posters have made 3 posts.
So Leanne will need to make 2 more.
Just bat back and forth between you a couple of times!  :)

Hi again,

It was a lovely surprise to hear from you. I wasnít sure whether you would get my message or not.

Iím not great at using this either - but it seems we need to bounce a message back between us 3 time each before going privately - then I can send you my email address and we can go from there too

It would be good to see whether we are in fact talking about the same Robert, and perhaps fill in some blanks on both sides.

Hello again,

Glad to hear from you. I had a message from another user saying that you need to make three posts then we can PM. Let's see if it works. My IT skills fit my age so fingers crossed.
The Robert I know about was the son of George Stobie and Cecilla I Steedman. George was a cabinet maker. I think George married twice. Robert had three, possible four siblings, Elizabeth, George and Gordon.
Are we talking about the same family?
Best wishes.

Hi - I tried to send a private message, Iím unsure if it worked or not, but just in case Iím absolutely sure we are talking about the same family. Perhaps send me an email as it might be a bit easier. I have send my address in the private message. If youíre unable to find that message and Iíll send you my address via here.

Exciting to connect!
Leanne

Sorry. Rootschat policy is you don't put personal email addresses on these posts.
If you do, it's likely to be removed by the moderators.
I hope you and robstob do manage to make contact and share you journeys.  :)
