The Nimerick/Nimrick Family Tree

Updated July 23, 2001

About Our Family Research


I've been working on the Nimerick family tree for 7 years, ever since I visited the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. I selected the Nimerick family, my husband's side of the family, because his family was unclear on the source; they thought it was Irish. His parent's said they had never found the name in their travels.

After finding some information in the Family History Library, I determined to find out if there were other Nimericks that might be more knowledgeable about the genealogy. I went to Switchboard.com and found Nimericks and Nimricks, so I created a form letter and sent it to each. I had probably 5 or 6 responses at the time. Over the years, as I have listed myself on various internet sites, I've had even more contacts and information.

I also contacted a certified genealogist in Staunton, Virginia, where I had found the earliest Nimerick information. She was very helpful and provided me a great deal more information and advice.

The greatest challenge we face now is tying in the various Nimericks/Nimricks. I have two complete family trees of Nimericks, one descending from a Peter Nimerick born in the late 1700s, and one descending from Jacob Nimerick, also born in the late 1700s. I have circumstantial evidence that Jacob was the son of Johann Gottfried Neimrich, who settled in Stanton where the spelling of Nimerick or Nimrick seems to have originated. I have various other instances of Nimerick or Nimrick families at certain periods of time, but have been unable to fit into the puzzle!
