Hobbins Family Genealogy Forum
My maiden name is HOBBINS. You would be amazed at how mangled the HOBBINS surname gets! I've had people think my last name was HIBBENS on many occasions. I had had so much trouble finding my father on the 1930 Pennsylvania Census until I did a "soundex" name search instead of an exact name. I knew he should be on it because he was born in 1921. When I did the soundex I found him listed with his mother, half-sister and half-brother (who were adopted by my paternal grandfather) under the name HOPPINS! The interviewer either misheard or misspelled the name.
I suggest that you do a "fuzzy" search or "soundex" search on your surname. I'll bet a dollar to donuts that HOBBINS comes up as a suggestion.
Good luck on your search!
