About Our Family Research


Our tree is divided into two major branches. The first has to do with my parents and their ancestors from Pennsylvania and the Eastern United States. These include the Slack (Slecht), Moore, McCay and Fischer families.

The second branch relates to my wife, who is descended from the Mader, Langille, Benoit (Bennett) and Parsons families of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, Canada.

I have organized my files on this page into four sections: Slack-Moore, McCay-Fischer, Mader-Langille, and Benoit-Parsons. For the time being have have decided to include only our direct ancestors. I would be pleased to provide information about siblings (uncles, aunts, cousins) to those who make such requests.

I have recorded almost all of the information from Nova Scotia and some of the information from Pennsylvania from primary sources, while I have relied on secondary sources for much of the rest. I am prepared to share this information.

Finally, I am indebted to the on-line community of genealogists, and appreciate any of the help and corrections that browsers can provide.
