I have a family history addiction. I have been at this for about 35 years now. As of this date (2013), I am 75 years old but I plan to keep at it as long as I can.
If any errors are found and corrections needed, please contact me by email and we will address the problem.
I live in the Akron, Ohio area - phone(330-628-4435) and would like to exchange info with anyone suspecting we have common family lines.
It all started about 1978 when my sister Patty shared some Longbottom information she had obtained regarding the Longbottom family immigration to the USA from England in 1854.
I started out with 3 ring note books. This was before the age of the personal computer. I wrote down all that I could on my Longbottom side and then started with my Mother's side of the family - the Snyder line.
The name Snyder was a different story - it was more like the Smith and Jones surname - too common! Unfortunately I began this after my mother died in 1968 so there was no first hand info to help me out. My Mom's only sibling Edna had also passed on. I talked with some of my cousins and little by little my data started to expand. I subscribed to Everton's Genealogy Helper,ran ads, mailed inquiries and waited
everyday for the Post Office to deliver the mail. I even started a SSS (Schneider-Snider-Snyder)clearing house news letter on this Surname. I learned that my Grandfather
Joseph Snyder had "gone on a hunting trip to West Virginia and brought back a bride".
I began sending letters to the Court Houses in Western West Va to see if they had such
a record. No luck. I then purchased computer print outs from Everton's for Census data on the Snyder and Longbottom names. I began seeing first names that were common to the names used by my Grandfather Joe Snyder's siblings in Berkeley Co., West Va.
This area is located in the West Virginia Eastern Pan Handle. I wrote to the Berkeley
County Historical Society and hit "pay dirt". The rest is now history.
My big problem appeared when my data became so large and took up so many 3 ring binders. I would get new information and then had a problem finding where it needed to go in one of the note books.
Fortunately the personal computer era was
dawning. I spent over $5000 for a new IBM PC that had no hard drive - you had only
floppie discs to use and Bill Gates had not yet invented "Windows". I started out ith "Brothers Keeper" software and am still using it. It has been a great program for me.
I have over 130,000 persons in it now and over 32,000 of them are the descendants of my 3rd great grandfather's (Jacob Snider 1732-1790) 13 children.
I have been accepted into the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution Certificate 180595) through my Jacob Snider lineage.
I'm happy to transfer memorials outside the FAG guidelines. However, I do request that you state what your relationship is. The only memorials I won't transfer are in my family.

Thank you for linking his parents to his memorial.

Just wondering if you got my reply to your question about George & Elizabeth (Snyder) as I can't seem to find it in my Sent Message list.
Thanks Again for the Shively Transfers,
|John & Kathy (Hoy) Eltiste||Sylvester & Curtis Henry Shively|
Thank You for transfering Sylvester & Curtis to my care. I am not certain, but I think that their sister might be M.A. Shively #90215223. What makes me uncertain, is that Their parents were married in 1874, and the dates on M.A. Shively's tombstone is b/d in 1870, I have her b/d in 1890??
If 1870 is correct, then her mother would have been 16 yrs., and unwed...
I see that you had these memorials transferred to you. Might you be related??
Kathy (Hoy) Eltiste
If you are related/good friend of this family let me know the relationship through the Edit tab for each one.....Don't forget to send me your number for the transfer.
If a closer relative of the deceased would ask you to transfer the memorial to them, I hope that you would.
Happy that I could help you. cj

Figured that is what happened, It happens, I just did a little dective work and figured Thomas was the correct name or would never have entered it.
No I am not related to the McGirr, family although I have heard my folks speak of them so the name is familiar. I have taken quite a few photos in that cemetery as it looked like it was being left behind. Also entered many memorials and still have more to do. I take most of the names from the Cemetery book and pictures when I get a chance.
If you are related/good friend of this family let me know the relationship and through the Edit tab send me your number and I will transfer to you.
Have a great evening. cj

Thank you for the information for the McGirr's. I do have one problem and wish you would check to see it it is entered correctly. You gave me a number for Mahlon's father...Glen. When I entered his numbers his name came up at Thomas. I think it was a simple error and I left the name on as he was married to Mahlon's mother. Please if this is wrong, let me know and I will correct it as soon as I possibly can. Thanks, cj

I'm sorry the updates of her parents took me so long! I'm sorry for the delay. Also, awesome NAME you have and I'm a bit fond of my own, but I believe you got the drop on me on last names.

As I have all the information from the death certificates on their postings I see no need of copying the death certificates.
