The ORNER Families


††† Family pages are color-coded (see below) depending on the surname of the immigrant ancestor, not on how the familyís name is spelled now.

††† The Every-Name Indexes also include all Orner descendants of other families, and all Arner descendants.

††† All Source Extracts except Penn. Archives also include the other surname families (Arner, Urner, etc), and also some individuals who are probably not members of any of these families.

††† Only the Orner surname lines are carried forward more than one generation.

††† This website only contains biographical information for people born before about 1930.

††† You can read more details about the Styles and Protocols used on this site.

††† Before using the Indexes, everybody should read the Index Tips.

††† If this site helps you, see how you can help other researchers.

Important Note: Most Orner families in the U.S. today are descended from Arner or Urner immigrants. If youíre looking for someone named Orner, and youíre not sure of their ancestry, your best bet is to start with the Every-Name Indexes, which include all persons named Orner regardless of their descent.
