The Genealogy Project (click on the button below to get to the project)
contains over 474,000 names (last updated Jan, 2016) of individuals, mostly
descended from 18th century Mennonites, River Brethren (Brethren in Christ) and
German Baptist Brethren who settled in Lancaster, Lebanon and Franklin
Counties, Pennsylvania, in Ontario, Canada and in Washington Co. Maryland and
Botetourt Co. Virginia. In the 1800s a number of the families moved to Darke Co.
and Montgomery Co. Ohio and to Iowa, Indiana and Kansas. In the early 1900s
there was continued migration to Upland, Calif. and Modesto, Calif.
The project was undertaken in conjunction with the compilation of the descendants and related families of Hans and Hannah Wenger. Three of their sons and Hannah immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1748 and 1749. Their descendants have spread across the country and the world. Several other families are also included in the database, including other Wenger lines, in particular many descendants of Christian Wenger, immigrant of 1727.
NOTE: In order to provide privacy to living individuals, individuals born after 1920 are not displayed.
