Why design a Web Site dedicated to the family name SNITCH.  Well, researching my family history came about a few years ago after both my sisters died and I realised that I never knew any of my grandparents.  My father and mother were dead and I never had anyone to discuss or tell me about my family and it's origins, as I can't remember it being a subject that ever cropped up in conversation with my family when they were alive.  Most of my uncles and aunts emigrated to Australia with my grandparents, therefore, I decided that I needed to know about my history.  My only living close family member was my brother and he helped me with some of my family details.  I found it a fascinating subject when I started to research the history of my family name, spending many hours in the Records Offices,  working my way through parish records, the reference libraries as well as searching on the internet.  It really brought things home to me when I started to relate the generations with details like, Arthur Snitch emigrated to the USA in 1871, this was when the wagon trains were still forging west opening up new lands, and he was only 10 years younger than my grandfather, or the fact that Butch Cassidy & the Sundance kid, the 2 notorious outlaws died in about 1937 after my father  was born.    Another being Chief Sitting Bull, the famous Indian Chief who defeated Colonel Custer at the battle of Little Bighorn (1874) only died in 1890 again that was after my grandfather was born.  Details like that really make you realise how far we have come in such a short time maybe just a generation or two.  

I would like to thank the members of the Snitch families from around the world who have helped to contribute to the results of what hopefully you will all think of as your own family history web site as it's your history as well as mine.

If you have any interesting facts, details or pictures that you may wish to see displayed on the site, please let me have them and I will try and add them to the site, space permitting.

So now you all know how this site came about and I hope you all enjoy navigating your way through it.
