Hi Amy, I felt the same as you and thought I was the only Penman in the World. We were wrong, aye. I am Robert Penman from Australia, I live on the Nth East region of NSW near the villiage of Kyogle.My Penman history extends from Scotland around Wishaw near Glasgow. They married Dicks, Chalmer, Dicksons and Thompsons, it is all a confusing mess.My side of the Penmans didn't talk much of their history or keep very good records.I am having dificulty tracking them back. But Amy you are in the right place 'GenForum' a Great place to start.
