Mr. Howard Earl Wissinger, 1905-1990. "The official family historian" from Bellefonte, PA. Howard logged thousands of miles and sifted through at least a ton of documents in municipal, state and federal archives collections. The result of his efforts was an impressive volume of records from which he wrote a concise family history for distribution among the Wissinger descendents. At the time of Howard's research, he estimated that there were around 582 living members of the American branch of the Wissinger family [ed note: these are descendents of the immigrant Johann Ludwig Wissinger].
