People and Places

Most of the various branches of the Kinser family entered the American colonies through the port of Philadelphia. Originally settling in the Pennsylvania colony they later moved in many directions as the land became more crowded and new generations needed room to grow. These pages are intended to tell the stories of those who moved on; who they were, why they moved, how they traveled and where they settled.
For more information related to the initial migration from Germany look at the History, Why They Came, and Preparation pages.
