The Snelson DataBase & Armory started as a few entries in a little black book more than 50 years ago in 1969 - I still have it.

I am fairly confident about the English and Welsh material as I have compiled most of that myself long before the Internet ever existed, the hard way from original records in St Catherine's House, genealogy libraries, churches and in cold, wet, muddy and sinking graveyards.

This extract only includes my own relatives (some 1500 or so individuals, 1400 or so locations, about 1000 citations and sources and more than 500 media items) and minimises or totally excludes information about those who are, or could still be alive - that is, born less than 100 years ago and not known by me to have died. So you'd be really very unlucky to find much if anything about yourself here (|;-)} - or me for that matter.

I have received contributions from many sources, but would particularly like to acknowledge my 2nd cousin Margaret Webb for her contribution on the Pierce side of our families, Richard Snelson for his input on our Welsh roots, Eric Little for his knowledge and work on Snelson families in Peover and Swettenham and of course, Charles J Snelson for his deep knowledge on all Snelson origins.

If you think we may be related, I will be only too happy to (a) exchange information about the relatives that we share, AND (b) if you would like a free copy of "The Mystery of the Macclesfield Chalice", please let me know. You can write to me directly by email to ajsnelson@optusnet.com.au, call or send me a text to +61 43 226 1456.
