   7 PMPresentation by Robin Yaklin - Subject; Texas Vick's roots from Richard2. Bio; Robin Yaklin, a native Texan, is the director of research for the Joseph Vick Family of America Genealogical Society. For about six years she has applied her skills to an update to the book originally published in 2004, Joseph Vick of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight County, Virginia, and his Descendants, Volume I. The update picks up where volume I ended and continues through the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. Robin entered volume I data into a genealogy database then requested updated information and lineage extensions from Vick family researchers. She continues work on the second volume, researching and looking for documentation to extend the lines because "genealogy without documentation is mythology."Robin has researched her family history for over thirty years, becoming hooked on genealogy after helping a friend trace ancestry for a genetic condition. Robin's mentor was the popular genealogical educator Lloyd Dewitt Bockstruck. He was supervisor of the genealogical section of the Dallas Public Library from 1979 to 2009 and a well-known speaker. Robin honed her research skills on her travels to ancestral home places and genealogical repositories. Like many genealogists, those trips resulted in photo albums filled with headstone photos. Robin's degree in journalism and time as a newspaper journalist developed her writing skills. Her publications include magazine articles, short stories, essays, and she is working on a novel. Apart from genealogy and writing, Robin is a long-time practitioner of Wu Hao Tai Chi Chuan, a martial art practiced for health benefits and meditation. Great-granddaughter of Susan Tabitha Vick and Great-great-granddaughter of Henry S. Vick, son of ? Joshua S, #205, page 291
