Prenatt Information and Genealogy
A centralized clearinghouse for people with
the surname Prenatt and for genealogical
information about the surname Prenatt.
By virtue of my prominence on the World Wide Web, I set up this stand-alone website as a third-level subdomain on the Internet Esquire website to help people who are looking for someone who has the surname Prenatt, and when I am asked nicely to facilitate contact with someone who has the surname Prenatt, I am usually quite willing to do so. However, I am under no obligation to help anyone in this regard, and I do not sell lists of Prenatts, so please do not ask.
Are You Looking for Me?
Perhaps you are looking for me. My byline is David F. Prenatt, Jr., dba Internet Esquire, and you can find my resume and contact information here. If your e-mail address is on my approved “white list,” e-mail is one of the easiest ways to get in touch with me. However, there is a really good chance that an unsolicited e-mail will get lost in the enormous and ever increasing amount of spam that I must sift through on a daily basis. In striking contrast, a first class letter to my post office box in Davis, California will cost you 37 cents, and you will almost certainly get a reply from me within 2 weeks.
Are You Looking for Someone Else Named David Prenatt?
Perhaps you are looking for someone else named David Prenatt. If so, please be advised that I am not willing to provide you with any contact information, but I will be happy to take your contact information and (at my discretion) forward it to one or more of the various men named David Prenatt that I have come across. On this note, if your name is David Prenatt, and you would like me to facilitate contact between you and people who are trying to find you, please feel free to use me as a go between. However, I do this as a courtesy, not as an obligation, and I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason.
Are You Looking for Someone Else with the Surname Prenatt?
Perhaps you are looking for someone else with the surname Prenatt. There are quite a few of them in the United States. Once again, please be advised that I am not willing to provide you with any contact information, but I will be happy to take your contact information and (at my discretion) forward it to one or more of the various Prenatts that I have come across. On this note, if your surname is Prenatt, and you would like me to facilitate contact between you and people who are trying to find you, please feel free to use me as a go between. However, I do this as a courtesy, not as an obligation, and I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason.
Are you Looking for Information about Prenatt Genealogy?
When I was in high school, I researched my family tree for a United States history class. Surprisingly, my father’s father could not provide me with very much information about our Prenatt pedigree. However, in 1995 or 1996, I received an unsolicited e-mail from the now late Thomas Prenatt Newton. Thomas’ grandmother’s maiden name was Prenatt, and he was able to provide me with an extensive amount of information about Prenatt genealogy. I also gleaned a certain amount of information about Prenatt genealogy from correspondence with other Prenatts that Thomas put me in touch with.
Sadly, I did not keep up my Prenatt correspondence over the years, and virtually all of the correspondence that I did have was lost, along with the limited amount of information that I gleaned from my own Grandfather Prenatt. Nonetheless, in October of 2003, I heard from a long lost Prenatt relative who inspired me to pick up the remaining pieces of Prenatt genealogy that I could remember and create a more or less indelible record of that genealogy by publishing it on the Internet. Witness the beginning of that indelible record in the present document.
The genealogical information published on this Web site was obtained from a variety of sources, most notable among them being the aforementioned Thomas Prenatt Newton. Thomas has also served as an indispensable go between with various Prenats and Prenatts as well as various Prenat and Prenatt descendants who have researched Prenat/Prenatt genealogy for decades, providing a remarkably complete history of Prenatt genealogy from the early 17th Century through to the present. Most notable among these Prenat/Prenatt genealogists are Annette Lynch, Barbara Kolk, and François Prenat, although not necessarily in that order.
If you are a Prenat or a Prenatt, or a descendant of someone with one of these surnames, and you would like to participate in research and discussions of Prenatt genealogy, please join the Prenatt Genealogy Blog.
