Hi, my name is Neil George Snelson
I was born in Derbyshire, England many many years ago. I moved to Canada with my family when I was six years old.
As far as we can tell, most of our family comes from around the Cheshire area in England. We have found that trying to research your genealogy across an ocean can be a painstaking process. Using the internet as our primary research tool has been interesting to say the least. I think I have memberships in at least 5 sites that claim to be free family history sites, but once you get to the information part, then the credit card requests start to pop up all of a sudden. I have found Rootsweb to be very good and easy to use. No I don't work for them, but if you find something you like , why not say it right..
Anyhow, I have met many Snelsons online, but have yet to link my family with anyone else's. I think we will eventually, just a matter of time. As far as we know, we have no relations in the U.S, but that could change once we get deep enough. My father always mentions an Uncle Jim who took of for the U.S and wasn't heard from much after that, so that may be an interesting branch to go down.
