The Gene Penningers of Washington State Updated July 30, 2002
About Our Family Research
My lineage of Penningers came from Germany via Philadelphia then down to North Carolina through Martin Beningar. The spelling of the name eventually became Peninger or Penninger depending upon when they moved to other parts of the country. I am still actively trying to update what I have.
Over several decades of haphazard research of my family tree, I received help from many people as well as the resources of several genealogy sites. I want to thank them all. Unfortunately, I cannot verify where I got my data nor its accuracy. Some sources are listed as I have gone back and rediscovered a source and I have supplied those. I have left what errors that may exist mixed with the accurate as the errors may help in some way to find the actual correct data. I release this information freely in the hopes that those who do have more accurate information will correct this tree. I also supply my tree in hopes that if there are some Penningers out there who have been as frustrated as I have been, they will now have something to work on. I apologize to all those who have been holding back information in hopes to write an accurate book someday. Maybe this will help you in some way. To those who have more information that they would be willing to share, please email me.
