Welcome to Ingels History
My name is Mark Ingels and over the past several months my father Jerry Ingels and I have started tracing our ancestry and we are hoping that this page will centralize all of the information that we have gathered. Our goal is that others interested in the same information will find this page useful and we hope to get contributions (pictures, names, dates, etc...) from anyone that can help expand our knowledge base.
Most of the information contained here has been gathered from the sites listed on our site resources page, as well as from family members, friends and our own independent research. I'd especially like to thank Kelli Mick, Stacie Appel, Luke McDaniel, Kirby Grider, Pat Hornell, Peter Johnson, Sandra Ingels (Dicks) and Kathy Salazar for providing an amazing amount of pictures and information for us to archive. We have tried our best to validate all of the information here, but errors are sure to exist. Please contact us if you see any errors, oversights or if you have any additional info and we'll do our best to update our site.
Where do our Ingels come from?

DNA evidence points to our lineal descendant coming from Scandinavia, most likely Denmark or Norway. He would have crossed the North Sea by ship into Scotland. There are records of the Inglis (Ingels or Ingls) family in Lanarkshire, Scotland in as early as 1300. The same family was referenced in the book Trans-Allegheny Pioneers.

Although we have been unable to connect the dots from Thomas Ingles (English) to our George Ingels, there is overwhelming recorded evidence, as well as DNA results that show that we come from the same tree. We are archiving that info here: Our Link to Thomas Ingles (English)
