Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a family history addiction. I have been at this for about 37 years now. As of this date (Jan 2016), I am 78 years old but I plan to keep at it as long as I can.

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.

I have over 144,000 persons in my data base now and OVER 37,000 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. The only memorials I won't transfer are those in my family.

If any errors are found and corrections needed, please contact me by email and we will address the problem.

Rothfuss and Finkbeiner
Our relationship is with both names. The two were from the same area in Germany and crossed many times in marriage. They came to America and settled in the same area in Michigan and marriages crossed again. The Finkbeiner goes back to the year 1480.
So far I have this line of Rothfuss back to the early 1700's. I worked more on the Finkbeiner than Rothfuss. Most of Washtenaw co., MI is related to each other in one way or another.
My husband worked and translated many of the old documents of Finkbeiner's history we acquired in the archives in Stuttgart.

Snyder Relative

I might be a distant relative. My grandfather is Wilbert Cletus Snyder, great grandparents are Ransom[n] Snyder and Sarah Nettie (Smith) Snyder, gg grandparents are . My father Edward Snyder and I have been doing genealogy for most of my life (I am now almost 50, and he is 76 years old). So, we have quite the collection; although, I did take this past year off. Due to our home being renovated, I didn't want to take a chance on any of my research being damaged. I would be interested in knowing what our family connection is.

I connected her to her parents with a comment but do you know where those parents are buried?

The 2 Michael Knapps
Hi Bob. Thanks for the tip about Michael Knapp in Standing Rock possibly being a cenotaph, with them being buried in St. Joseph. However, after doing some more research, it looks like they are two different Michael Knapps! The were born in the same year and both married women named Catherine, but one lived in Suffield and Kent, and the other in Randolph. They have different birth months, and died in different years. But I certainly see your confusion - lots of Knapp family members around here! *Janice
