|I am Eric E. Hovemeyer and have been collecting genealogy and family history material since I was a teen-ager. Since around 1970 I have been especially interested in the Goldsberry Family; but, other families that I research and collect (at least to some degree) include Silkman, Reynolds, Miller, Hollister, Coulter, Boatman, Horton, Buske, Balfanz, and Hovemeyer, as well as some of my wife's lines including, Ruff, Nile, Oswalt, Shively, and Bieri.|
My education was in theoretical mathematics, but I earned my living in the insurance and healthcare industries, ending up doing personal computer support for a large healthcare system in Cincinnati, Ohio. I retired in June 2011.
Besides genealogy, I enjoy photography, music (especially acoustic Americana), and outdoor adventure activities including hiking, camping, boating, and caving.
I am not an active Find A Grave worker (although I have photographed a lot of gravestones), but I do spend a lot of my time administering the Goldsberry Family Website at myfamily.com.
