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.
* descendants of Jozsef Pöllinger
born circa 1845
whose sons were Matthias Pöllinger
born 1868 in Feketeváros, Sopron, Hungary
(now Purbach am Neusiedler See, Burgenland, Austria)
and József Pöllinger II
born in 1880 in Feketeváros, Sopron, Hungary
still living in: Purbach am Neusiedler See, Burgenland, Austria
note: this line is characterized by the unusual occurence
of 6 alleles for DYS464 and 4 alleles for DYF399
order a test kit for this line from DNA Heritage
order a test kit for this line from Family Tree DNA
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 Family Tree DNA or DNA Heritage. 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 both Family Tree DNA and by DNA Heritage.
