After my father (William Daniel Snyder) died in 1975, I began to have an interest in my family history. I met and worked with a lot of "old timers at genealogy" and they trained me to have a source for every bit of information that I could find. These were the days before computers and the internet. It was a slow process, but very rewarding.
Today things have changed and genealogy is much easier and faster than before. One of the main sources of information is the cemetery, which is why I have such an interest in this wonderful website.
The names I have an interest in are... Snyder, Dufrain/Dufresne, Allain, Becquet, Boisvert, Landry, Keister, Knight, Foster, Aycock and Martin.
I am not concerned with how many memorials I add to findagrave. Yet I am very grateful to the people who have spent long hours adding a high volume of memorials. My interest is finding additional information, photos and obituaries to add to those memorials. I also enjoy hearing from the people who send me new information for the ones I manage. If you donít receive a thank you from me, just know I am VERY grateful for anything sent my way. I truly enjoy the teamwork.
I hope the photos and information that I have provided for this website will be of help to others. You may use any of them on other websites or for your own family records. I'm happy to share.
RE: Howard McConnell Hi Kathye, thanks for the tip on the websites. Howard and his family's members pages are a true testament to the saying it takes a village. Glad to be part of the team. With the information on the obit you sent I located his third spouse Olga's page and several of his children and stepchildren that were listed in it. (Edits Pending). Thanks for all your work and contributions to Find A Grave. Take care, Jim
RE: Howard McConnell Hi Kathye, thanks for the obit on Howard, they don't come up on the web site I use to search records, the place of death I found was from a Social Security Death Notice. I have noticed before that they may represent where they resided rather than where they actually died. I am going to have stop using them unless other records reflect the same info. I will update their pages and plan to send them to Pat Kaszubowski so all of the McConnell's at Evergreen will be managed by the same person in case a relative wants them transferred to them which she had no problem doing. If you would like them back just let me know, just as easy to send them to you. Thanks for you help. Take care and have a Happy Easter. Jim
RE: Joseph Dufrain You are so very welcome. It is my pleasure. I know that anytime I can find something relating to my family I am excited. I hope that I am able to help you with more family members in the future.
She has a headstone with no death date in Calvary Cemetery. According to information on that memorial, she's buried in Resurrection. Wonder if she's buried there or Resurrection. If she's in Resurrection, they need to move the stone from Calvary to there.
