Research in England – Sir Isaac Pennington – Project Funded

A Special Research Project to confirm the birth dates and location for Sir Isaac Pennington, his spouse and his children and to provide copies of the sources has been approved by the Board of Directors.

The Pennington Research Association (PRA) Board of Directors has approved funding for a research project in England. A PRA Member will manage the research in England and work directly with both professional and non-professional genealogists to conduct research in England.

We will seek interested genealogists (professional and non-professional) to submit their proposal to us so we can evaluate and select a genealogist to conduct the research for the PRA.
