Meet The Volunteers





Tim Robinson

I have been actively researching my Robinson roots for nearly seventeen years. It has been a very tough project.  Even before I began researching my family’s genealogy, I do not remember that my aunts or uncles ever said anything about the older generations in our family.  When asked about them, it was as though something inappropriate had been asked and subject was quickly changed.

This much I do know of my ancestral line.

Born August 6, 1946 in West Baltimore, I was the youngest of five boys and three girls.  I married my wife Diane Jones in 1968.  We have two lovely daughters and now a peach of a granddaughter named Natalie.

I served in the United States Army for two years, ten months and two days, serving in the Army Fire Department while in Korea, and in Fort Carson, Colorado from 1968 to 1971. I joined the Baltimore County Fire Department in 1973, and worked as a firefighter, an Emergency Medical Technician, a Dispatcher, and a Fire Liaison Officer to the civilian dispatcher at the 911 Center in Towson, Maryland. I retired as of September 1, 2006.
