July 10, 2006 East Texas Clan to Gather on Land Where Ancestors
Worked as Slaves The Snoddy family reunion is an established
tradition in the Tyler and Longview, Texas area, with family coming
from as far away as Seattle and California. This year was different.
Melvin Snoddy, family historian and chairman of the reunion
committee, has been a genealogist for 28 years. He's been researching
the Snoddy name for some time now and had a breakthrough recently.

"I'm standing on land where 140 years ago my
great-great-grandfather was a slave," he said.
