We are nearing the end of the road in gathering information for inclusion in the book of Nicholas (Henckel) Jenkins and his almost 19,000 descendants. It looks now like it will require two volumes to cover everyone that we know of to date. Once the information is generated in the proper format for publishing, it will be too difficult to go back and add or modify names and information.

The small committee working on this Jenkins genealogy has been Paulette (Johnston) McNally and Doug MacDonald of Charlottetown, and Hazel (Jenkins) Sanford of Vancouver. Although we have collaborated for a few years now, we could not have done this without the gracious input of others. We are indebted to the many of you who have already submitted information on your branch of the family. Without your input this project would not have been nearly as comprehensive as it already is.

If you are wondering if your name is included, or if your branch of the family is included, or if what you have on the family is to be included, or if you have an old photo you would like to see included, etc., please send it via email to by May 15, 2009 at the latest. Nothing received after that date will be included, but will be saved for a future update some years down the road. If in doubt, please ask.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think might be interested so they won't be left out. As of May 15th we will have reached the point of no return for additions and/or corrections.
