The Schneider/Snyder Family fonds consists mainly of handwritten and typed correspondence between Fritz and Thilde Schneider from 1925 to 1942. The subject matter of the early letters focuses on everyday happenings while the pair were living and studying in different areas of Germany. Later correspondence took place while Thilde was residing on the Society Farm in Little Britain, Manitoba and Fritz was in Germany on business. Finally, letters from 1939-1942 discuss Fritz's internment at the Kananaskis Internment Camp in Alberta and the hearings for his eventual release. Also included in the fonds are various other documents: correspondence from Thilde's father to herself and her family, and from Fritz Schneider to businesses and government organizations as part of his work on the Society Farm; photos of and brochures for farm equipment; and original school records and diplomas for Thilde from 1915 to 1920 and for Fritz Schneider from 1919.
