Publications

The Pennington Research Association (PRA) provides several publications for our Members and Pennington researchers.

Many of our publications are now available to current PRA Members as download files (Adobe Reader) in the Members-Only Section.

We are changing our distribution process and as soon as it is ready, we'll update this page and our publications order page. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We'll restore the publication page as soon as possible.

The publications include the Pennington Pedigrees, the Pennington Cousins' Courier, the Pennington Periodicals Volume I, Volume II and Volume III as well as several Pennington research books and family history reports.  For more detailed information scroll down the page.

Published Information

The Pennington Research Association is not responsible for how current the genealogical information may be or the accuracy or authenticity of genealogical information released in its publications, in print, electronically or on the Internet.  This genealogical information has been supplied by PRA members and other researchers, which we believe is the latest and best Pennington Family information available to date.

Despite our best efforts to meet the genealogical research standards we subscribe to, each researcher must ensure their own research is as accurate as they can make it.

We subscribe to the National Genealogical Societies Standards for Sound Genealogical Research.  To view them, go to:  http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/comstandsound.htm.

Family Groups

The original Pennington Family Group assignments were first designated some 35 years ago at the start of the Pennington Research Association. Constant genealogical study over the years reveals that certain groups can, and have been, combined when a common ancestor is found. Combined with the DNA Study, we are learning more about our common ancestors and we anticipate more Family Groups will be combined as our genealogical research and DNA Study continues. The Family Groups represent the genealogical work done to date.

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
