Re: Klinzing (Klenzing), William - west PA
Hi Carolyn!The Klinzing (Klenzing) name is very hard to research! I haven't found much information. I know that my grandmother was a Klenzing and I heard that there was a rift in her family so that she and her brother and sister did not keep in touch with the rest of the siblings (this is anecdotal information given to me years ago by her brother.I have no way to check it.)We always heard that she was born in Pittsburgh but we aren't sure if it was Pittsburgh proper or if it was in a surrounding town.One of her relatives lived in Indiana, PA which is also in the western part of the state.Could your Dad's dad be a part of the older siblings or a child of the older siblings?My grandmother's father was named William.I doubt that he was your Dad's Dad since I know the three youngest children and they were all older than 7 when their mother died.He was still alive at that point but I don't know much else about him.If you want you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.I'd be happy to share what little I have and may be we can come up with something.Also, have you tried the spelling Klinsing?
