The Goble Family Association holds a
triannual Goble Reunion which gives Goble Family Association members the opportunity to
meet and discuss the business of our Association.

of mouth. Invite your brothers, sisters and cousins to join!

The result of our 2007 Reunion and Goble Family Association meeting
- BUDGET The financial report was accepted leaving a balance of about
$407.09 to carry forward after the July newsletter is mailed.
- NEWSLETTER Evelyn
Steen will complete and mail the July newsletter, which is the membership drive. This
newsletter will be Evelyn's last one as newsletter editor. Sally Goble Meyers has
generously offered to be the new newsletter editor for the 3-year term (and I’m sure
she’ll be terrific!)
- NEXT REUNION Barbara Volker has agreed to be the
chairperson for the 2010 reunion, which is to be held in the Western part of the country.
Anyone wanting to assist please contact Barbara at: email@example.com.
BUSINESS Discussion took place on the Goble Family Tree DNA Project. We need for a
proven Thomas Goble descendant to have the testing done to establish the DNA markers for
others to match. A motion was made to begin a DNA fund for the project and 5 Goble
descendants of Thomas volunteered to take the test. A total of $140 was contributed to the
- FUTURE OF OUR ASSOCIATION After 14 years I am retiring as the
president/treasurer and newsletter editor of our association. I have absolutely enjoyed
every reunion and meeting so many new cousins from all around the country. Barbara Volker
has volunteered to accept the position and will assume the responsibility of
President/Treasurer and newsletter distributor. I am confident that Barbara will do a
great job as your leader and I think our future as a family association is bright. Sally
Goble Meyers has accepted the newsletter editor position and although I've enjoyed the job
it's time for new ideas. I'm sure she'll do a great job. I will continue to maintain and
develop our website and now I will have more time to do the research I love as your
historian/genealogist. We still have a few vacancies; so if you want to help make our
Goble Family Association strong, please contact our new president, Barbara Volker. Love, Evelyn Goble Steen.
