Pages 1-34 is the history of the Brinegars that connect back to Veith Bruninger who came over on the Britannia in 1731. This lineage is written via the line of his son Hans Adam, then Jacob, then Thomas William Brinegar, Thomas David Brinegar, Andrew Jackson Brinegar and my great grandfather William Andrew Jackson Brinegar. I have woven bits of American history into the timelines of our ancestors.

Pages 35 to 74 is the history of my direct family from William Andrew Jackson Brinegar's son, my grandfather Binus Brinegar, my father William Albinus Brinegar, myself of course, and my son Kyffon Joseph Lee Brinegar.
