Hi, Welcome to my web site. I have been maintaining a site for a number of years to help others and myself to dig deeper into our family tree. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and how I got interested in this in the first place.

I was born in Philadelphia and named Horatio Connell Snyder. I wondered where the name of Horatio originated in my family and the search began, the rest is the results that I pass on to you. The first Horatio in the line I have found is Horatio Pennock, and I will probably be the last as I did not pass it on to my son. Thus my reason for the research.

I have spent over 30 years in my quest for the information I have accumulated. I have been to Primitive Hall twice, Chester County, Delaware Co., Delaware, North Carolina, and Virginia (where I am living) in search of information on ancestors. I have visited Historical Societies, Museums, Old home sites and many cemeteries for the information I have found to date. I have more family history books about Chester County families than I have room for. I am not a great typist and sort of deplore that labor so I tend to keep my information as simple as possible. The information I have researched is from Genealogies that I have found and available records on Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com. I have 45 WFT discs, and numerous Family Tree Data Discs.

I attempt to be as accurate as I can but I make a lot of typing errors. I hope that the information you find in my files may help you with some of your brick walls, I still have a lot of brick walls to try and climb myself. Feel free to contact me and ask questions, if I can I'll look it up in the many books that I have.
