Research/Writing in Progress: Bender

(Last updated 1/5/16)

Research questions:

CAN WE GO BACK BEYOND JACOB & HELENA BRENNEMAN BENDER? WERE SAMUEL K. AND MARIE SCHWARTZENTRUBER BRENNEMAN HER PARENTS?

HOW PREVALENT WERE THE STRANGE INTERMARRIAGES BETWEEN THE BENDERS AND BRENNEMANS? MARIA’S BROTHER JOHANNES ALSO MARRIED A BRENNEMAN.

WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE IN NEW GERMANY, MD? WHY DIDN’T THEY SETTLE IN BERKS OR LANCASTER COS, PA?

WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE SURNAME AND WHO WERE SOME FAMOUS BENDERS?

Newly discovered resources:

GOOGLE “MARIA BENDER BRENNEMAN

Articles begun:

NONE

Speculation:

MARRIAGE PARTNERS WERE AND STILL ARE LIMITED IN THE WORLD’S AMISH COMMUNITIES, SO FAMILY MEMBERS OFTEN INTERMARRY.
