Family history is important to many people, and certainly was to Samuel Whitaker Pennypacker. Researching the past can reveal fascinating information about one’s ancestors. Samuel spent years researching his family lines and the exhibit will feature his paternal line back to the arrival of Hendrick Pannebecker in Pennsylvania in 1698 and his marriage to Eve Umstat. The exhibit will highlight artifacts and information that Samuel collected on these family members, along with the stories on how he obtained his information in an era without a computer or telephone. It will also contain tips on how one can do their own family research.
