I'm really, really trying to understand all the rabid competitiveness on here. It's insane. Do some people on here have such a miserable, unrewarding life that adding names is their only accomplishment. So sad.
Also, trolling the cemeteries for duplicates, especially those that were made for an excellent purpose because the original poster is no longer active, and the one who created the duplicate has much, much more information because it's their family, is really rather pathetic.
I've been interested in my genealogy since I was a child. Although my father's grandparents came over from Bohemia in 1881, his mother's maternal line, and all my mother's lines were here in colonial times. So, one part of me is in only a 3rd generation American, and the other part is an 11th generation.
My grandfather Frank Kruta was adopted by his stepfather James Kruta. His biological father remains unknown until a Y-DNA match is found.
My father's lines are the Braums, and Zemans who originated in Bohemia and immigrated through Ellis Island around 1876. They went to Chicago, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
His maternal lines are the Yagers and Velmans (Veulemans) from Missouri via Germany and East Flanders, the Barlows from the Germanna Colony in Virginia, and the Singletons from Kentucky, Indiana, and Missouri.
My mother's maternal lines are the Greenes, Bruners, Tarrants, McCurrys, and Painters from Greene County, TN. There's a 250 year history back there since that's where my grandmother was born. Also, the Watkins from Sullivan County, TN, the Tarrants and Manloves from Dover, Delaware, and the Allisons from Maryland.
Her paternal lines are the Burns from Scotland to Pennsylvania, the Smiths from Tennessee, and the Cloyds and O'Banions from Kentucky.

So, how are you related to Joseph Snodgrass Sr. I am his descendant through his son Joseph Jr.
Where do the Braggs come from in your lineage? You have all your names listed and where they come from. I hope to be able to do that some day soon.
