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.
Unfortunately none of our publications are available for sale to the public at this time. We are having a problem with our distribution so we have temporarily removed our publications order page from this website. 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 and II and several Pennington research books and family history reports. For more detailed information scroll down the page.
The Pennington Pedigrees is the official publication of the Pennington Research Association. It is published two times a year and provided to our current Members as a downloadable file. The first Pedigree was published in October, 1968. Each publication contains an index for easy reference to the articles and material.
Issues from 1968 through 1979 are in Pennington Periodical Volume I files and are available for download on our website in the Members-only section.
Issues from 1980 through 1999 are part of the Pennington Periodical Volume II files. Some of those files are available for download on our website in the Members-only section.

The Pennington Periodicals Volume I files are all the Pennington Pedigrees and Pennington Cousins’ Couriers from 1968 - 1980. The Pennington Periodicals Volume II files are some of the Pennington Pedigrees and Pennington Cousins' Couriers from 1980 – 1990. These files are being release a few at a time. You will be able to read all Pennington Periodicals from another formative era of the PRA AND you can search for your favorite (or infamous!) ancestors. That’s right! You can actually SEARCH ALL the Pedigrees AND ALL the Couriers for specific names, locations or any other word or phrase!
Just think how this will help your research!
With Volume II, we've include some added bonuses! The additional files are copies of the final reports of the PRA’s special research report by Terry Moore, CG. Her final reports cover her research on the Benajah Pennington Family of Rowan & Wilkes Counties, North Carolina picking up where the first report published in 2007 left off. Plus Volume II will contain other special research files to help. These files will be released as time allows.
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.
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.
