The Pöllinger Surname Project


Goals.   The goal for the Pöllinger Surname Project is to identify if all Pöllinger families originated in Hungary, Austria and Germany, and to determine which Poellinger families are related. We would also like to establish if there is any linkage to or between the surname variants found in England, France and Italy. There are also Pollingher/Pollinger families from Romania.

Additional Objectives.   Other objectives include:

Surname Variations.   All surname variations are welcome to participate, such as Pullinger, Pollinger, Pillinger, Böllinger, Boellinger, Bellinger, Bollinger, etc.

Please note that one Pöllinger family emigrated to the United States where the name was changed to Poellinger and Pellinger, and the name was misspelled on various documents as Perllinger, Pillinger, Berllinger, Bellinger, and Bulinger.

American Poellinger/Pellinger Families.   Though Pöllinger is not an unusual name in Europe, it seems that all Poellinger's in the United States can be traced to two families:

European Participants.   We are eagerly seeking European participants at this time.

Financial Information.   The Pöllinger Surname Project is a private undertaking for personal interest. This is not a commercial venture. No remuneration is received by any of the participants nor the project director. Participants are responsible for the purchase of a DNA test kit from YSEQ or Family Tree DNA. If funds become available in the future, reimbursements for testing shall be made on the basis determined by the body donating such funds.

Participation.   If you are interested in participating, you can order a test kit using one of the links above or you can learn more about ordering. If you are unable to participate (because you are not a direct line male descendant or because you are uncomfortable at this time) you can sponsor a test for someone else or help recruit new participants. Members of this project have been tested by YSEQ, iGENEA, Family Tree DNA, and DNA Heritage, which was subsequently pruchased by Family Tree DNA.
