This tree is divided into two major branches. The first relates to my parents and their ancestors from Pennsylvania and the Eastern United States. It includes the Slack (Slecht), Moore, McCay and Fischer families. (I am very eager to receive new leads on the Moores.)

The second branch relates to my wife, who is descended from the Maders and Langilles of Lunenburg County in Nova Scotia and the Benoit (Bennett) and Parsons families from Newfoundland.

In addition to an internet tree I have organized my files on this page into four groups of records: Slack-Moore, McCay-Fischer, Mader-Langille, and Benoit-Parsons. For the time being have have decided to include only our direct ancestors, but 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. It would be my pleasure to share this information.

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