Nile Kinnick, Jr. in Kinnick Early US Family History

I have been asked to note that Nile Kinnick, Jr. is noted in the Kinnick Early US Family History, under his father, Nile Kinnick, Sr. - who is the most recent of this lineage in this book.

The book does carry the line of Nile Kinnick, Jr. back for seven or eight generations on his Kinnick line.

Happy Reading! ;-)

Fletcher-Kinnick Connections

The Fletcher - Kinnick Connections have been documented at:

The new Kinnick Early US Family History book includes this family, and the upcoming Schwyhart Early Family History will have another generation added, as well. Check back here, regularly, for the latest updates.

Happy Reading! ;-)

43 grandchildren of John and Ann

As I noted last week, I want the third book in the Kinnick family series to focus on the North Carolina-Indiana branch of John and Ann. The challenge is that they had 12 children and at least one of them had 12 children... I am currently exploring a focus on the 43 (or so) identified grandchildren, with using 3 generations from there. Three generations works best for these books. Some of these grandchildren do not have large families, some do. It is an interesting challenge.

An additional challenge is how much good information to include from the 1953 book. There are some good, detailed stories. Should they be in the new book? or just the research material and vital stats that I did in the first book. I'm working on including a black and white photo or two in the Schwyhart book... that is another interesting option. Your thoughts and comments on these issues are appreciated.

Happy reading!

Schwyhart-Kinnick book next

The next book that will be finished, base on existing research and family history files, will be focused on the Walter and Susan (Schwyhart) Kinnick family - from the Schwyhart point of view.

All persons with the surname Schwyhart appear to descend from two families where two brothers had married two sisters. A very interesting story.

This book will report one more current generation than the Kinnick Early US Family History does.

My next post will discuss the planning for the third book which will relate to the North Carolina/Indiana branch. Check back regularly.

Happy reading! ;-)

This book is the first comprehensive print version of this early US
(Kinnick) family history incorporating the considerable additional
research undertaken over the last 15 to 25 years or so beyond the 1953
Kinnick book. Portions of this research have been published online and
in articles in the Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin. The book
includes the first three generations of both the John and Mary Kinnick
move to Ohio, Illinois and Iowa and the John and Ann Kinnick move to
North Carolina, Tennessee and Indiana. Subsequent books will expand on
these families and affiliated families.

The message will go to all mailing lists of each of the surnames included in the message. I've been asked, for years, when a print version of this information would be available. Now it is. I'm very interested to see what, if any, responses I get. Time will tell.

Happy reading! ;-)
