Hi, and Welcome. Fizell.org went up on the web in January 2001, originally intended to provide a
home and a research source for Fizell surnamed family trees. It was later on we
realized each family tree branch could become another separate family
tree webpage, with a different surname.
Over the years we
have been fortunate to have been discovered by thousands of people who found
their surnames on our website. While most were not related to the family trees
published in these pages, when contacted, we replied and tried to point them in
the direction where they could find help.
others found lost family members right here and helped grow their webpage and
family tree branch by providing their ancestors' data. Initially, if you were on
a branch and sent us your ancestors data we would build your web page into an
family tree with ancestors going back as far as your information allowed.
We are now 20 years
plus into retirement and decided to no longer add new names or generations to the
family trees published here. We will continue to publish your family trees here on Fizel.org, just no longer update them. We will leave your family pages up
for your perusal but we heartily suggest you publish your own family tree on
Ancestry.com where you will have the largest audience in the world. It is
the best website, bar none, to grow your family tree. Ancestry.com will publish
your family tree for free and you can make the living persons in your tree be
anonymous or not, your choice.
are Books and Essays written about the Fizell and other Family Genealogies.

tree on Ancestry.com.
And Happy Hunting.
(Good housekeeping skills would insist I delete all the old text and information
below but I'll leave that for whoever takes over this site down the line.- Also,
just added the counter. Joe)

New additions on
"The Search for a Common Man's Ancestors"
is a series of books
written about the history of different branches of the Fizell Family tree.
A book published in London, 1797 -
SURVEY of the FRENCH COLONY in the ISLAND of ST. DOMINGO
from West Chester, PA enlisted in the Union
Army at 16. At the age of 20 he still is the youngest man ever to become a
General in the United States Army. His story is in this short history:
the will of Peter
Penebecker, 1710-1770. Peter was the son of Heinrich
Pannebakker, ancestor of the Pennypacker family tree. Note: To see
the complete Pennypacker family tree, contact me, join the Pennsylvania
Historical Society or become a subscriber to Ancestry.com.
Notice: I will keep this
site active and add new material as I find it. Always be sure to check
for new additions here or on the Research Page. The Fizell Family tree
has grown too large to handle it with the current format of this site.
Adding the newly found Pennypacker genealogy has added another couple
thousand names. However, the Fizell Family Tree (originally called the
Philadelphia Branch) is now available on Ancestry.com. Normally you
need a subscription to view information on Ancestry.com. If you
contact me I will invite you to view the Fizell Family tree with all the
many branches and surnames. I believe you will not have access
to other parts of Ancestry.com but will be able to see your family if we are

As we approach twelve years providing genealogy
pages on the Internet, originally limited to the Fizell surname, we are pleased
to count 117 pages of branch family trees with Surnames through the alphabet
from A to Z.
Thankfully, over the years other Fizell
individuals, not related to us, have provided their family history for us to
publish on this site - Fizell family trees from Canada and Australia who have
since traced their roots to Ireland and Germany. These Fizell family trees
contain 78 different surnamed family trees. As the link below suggests,

mission is to develop contacts and links to all Fizell families and their web
pages, and to pass along genealogy information to the respective family tree
