I am looking for info on the Olinger surname. My great grandmother was Violet Marrie Olinger probably born late 1800's or early 19oo's. Also any pedigree on her would be greatly appreciated.

Good Morning,

I've heard that my Ollingers may have come the Prussia/Germany area prior to 1800. My gr-gr grandfather William Ollinger was born in 1831 in Echternach Luxembourg. His father was Heinrich B.1804 - it says in Echternach as well. And his father George B. about 1758..maybe in Germany.

Does any of this information sound familar to you? Any leads would be apprciated.

i have a german book that tells me that many families moved from the Rhineland?pfalz area in Germany to the area formerly known as the province of Bukovina, Austria (now part of Romania). My family was one of those families. They apparenetly moved form between 1740 to 1780.

Anything before that time is very speculative for my family tree of Ollingers!

If you want my info, let me know.
