Who I Am

My name is William Snead.

I currently live in Duluth, Georgia, USA.  Duluth is located about 26 miles Northeast of Atlanta.

I am a retired soldier (22 years) and a retired businessperson. (10 years)

I am married (40 years), have five great children (ranging in years) and two precious Grandchildren. (In their younger years)

My hobbies are genealogy, researching local history, writing and building string instruments.

My Genealogical Skill Set


I have spent countless hours in history archives, public libraries, History Centers , Courthouses, and with Online resources receiving an education along the way on the do’s and don’ts of genealogical research.

I started with on page and one family of one generation. Now my research has gradually expanded to more than 5 generations and a few dozen families.

With help from family members here on earth and some who are now gone I have traced my family’s ancestral line back to my Great-Great-Grandfather John G SNEAD.

Those are my credentials.

My Goals


I am currently searching for information about what the initial ‘G’ stands for in John G SNEAD’s name.

After I reach that goal, I will set another one of finding who John G Snead’s parents were and where the family came from.

What will I do when I reach that goal?

I will set another one.
