HI CAROL,

OUR TWO LINES ARE CONNECTED WAY BACK IN GERMANY. THE REASON I KNOW THAT IS THAT WHEN MY JOSEPH SCHNEPP GOT HERE, GEORGE AND TWO OTHER SCHNEPPS ON YOU SIDE WERE SPON. ON CHURCH CHRISTINGS FOR JOSEPH'S KIDS. YOUR LINE CAME IN 1733 WITH JOHANNES SCHNEPP AND MINE IN 1847 WITH JOSEPH. YOURS ALREADY OWNED LAND IN VIRGINIA AND WENT THERE. MINE
STAYED ONE GENERATION IN PA WHERE ALL THE GERMANS CAME IN. THEN WENT TO OHIO. THEN BOTH LINES RAN INTO EACH OTHER AGAIN IN INDIANA WHERE FAMILIES ON BOTH SIDES USED THE SPELLING SNAPP. THERE IS A DANIEL BLY ON YOU SIDE OF THE FAMILY THAT CAN HELP YOU MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE. HE WROTE A BOOK ON YOUR LINE BUT HE IS MORE THAN WILLING TO SHARE WITH YOU AND HELP YOU FIGURE THINGS OUT. HE WILL BE ON THE MESSAGE BOARD SOMEWHERE. AT THE TIME THE SCHNEPP'S GOT HERE IN THIS COUNTRY, 80% OF THE POPULATION WAS GERMAN. NOT ENGLISH!! I WILL LOOK FOR YOU TOO AS I GO ALONG. THERE IS A CHURCH IN GERMANY THAT HAS HUNDREDS OF SCHNEPP'S IN THEIR RECORDS. YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED. THERE IS ACTUALLY MORE OUT THERE ON YOUR LINE THAN MINE. NOT TO BRAG BUT I HAVE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE HAS ON MY LINE. THAT IS BECAUSE I TOOK ALMOST 2 YEARS OFF WORK TO WORK ON IT AND I DID FOR 10 HR. A DAY, 6 DAYS A WEEK.
THE AREA ALL OF THEM CAME FROM HAD BEEN FRANCE BUT EARLY IN 1700's GERMANY TOOK IT AND WANTED TO GET RID OF THE NON CATHOLIC FAMILIES. THE GERMAN KIND OF ENGLAND, GEORGE, ENCOURAGED THEM ALL TO GO TO HIS COLINIES AND THEY DID. LOL I WILL BE BACK IN TOUCH WITH YOU SOON.

LINDA

OH, I AM NOT SURE BUT THE LAWRENCE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MAY HAVE BEEN LORENZO SCHNEPP/SNAPP. I WILL TRY TO CHECK IT OUT FOR YOU.
