Surnames: Barvinchak, Snyder
Looking for help with information on this couple. She was born in Pennsylvania in 1906--Marie Ann Barvinchak. He was born possibly in Pennsylvania in 1907--George R. Snyder. They had two sons, Raymond and Ronald. She died in 1994 in San Bernardino, California. He died in Jun 1965 in San Bernardino, California and is possibly buried in New Jersey. Her father is possibly Michael Barvinchak.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. thanks!

Birth Certificate for George

If this is your George Snyder in the California death index here:

Then I think this may be the same person in the 1907 PA birth index:

Name: Snyder, George I.
DOB: 07.14.1907
POB: Braddock County
MMN: M. Barr
Cert #77490

You could obtain a certified informational copy of his death certificate to learn where he is buried.

Sherrie, has this information about George Snyder.

The CA death index states that George's mothers maiden name is Barr so I looked for a marriage for a Snyder and Barr.

Obit for Michael Barvinchak-he is survived by these siblings, four sisters, Mary Snyder of San Bernardino, Calif., and Margaret Wilson, Evelyn Meyers and Gaby Fox, all of Forest Hills, two brothers, Andrew of North Versailles and John of Swissvale.

PA Marriages
John and Andrew Barvinchak marriages state that their parents are Michael Barvinchak and Barbara Gimesky. Evelyn's marriage has her mother as Barbara Gimasky.

Good luck in your search. Kathryn
