Hello, Eric. It's good to see you're interested in the Snaer family. They imigrated to New Orleans (via Cuba) from Saint-Domingue (present day Haiti) in 1809. They were considered to be free people of color. There were two sons in that family, Jean Baptiste and Francois. I have the children of Jean Baptiste but nothing more. I have alot more on Francois's family. He was married to Marie Rochefort and had several children, only one of whom married and had children. This was Samuel who was an accomplished musician in New Orleans. After Marie died, Francois married Anne Emirene Beluche, and they had several children.
I am descended from the second marriage. I have several generations in each "family." Since you asked about the blood mix, I will tell you that the generally the descendants of Francois and Marie through Samuel today consider themselves African-American. The descendants of the second marriage today generally consider themselves white. My grandfather is listed in his birth certificate in New Orleans as "colored" but he and his brothers and sisters were considered white once they moved to California.
If you'd like to, please send me an e-mail outside of this board to firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you give me the names of your parents and grandparents, I can see if my lists include them.
BTW, I live in California near Sacramento.
