The Bunnell/Bonnell Newsletter was in continuous publication
from January 1987 until November 2014 - 28 continuous years.
Mr. William Austin of Lacyville, PA started the Newsletter
in order to share some of the material he had collected during
25 years of research and correspondence. That first issue
was 8 pages long. Over the years Bill grew the Newsletter
both in content and in subscribers, and he became one of the
foremost experts on the Bunnell/Bonnell genealogy.
After 10 years of publishing the newsletter, Bill turned it over to Carole Bonnell and her sister-in-law Teri Bonnell. Their first publication was in January 1997. Like Bill, they published an outstanding Newsletter and provided a much needed forum for Bunnell and Bonnell researchers to share information and ask questions.
Finally, in January 2003, in answer to Carole's and Teri's calls for new editors, Charlie and Pat Bunnell decided to give it a try. Charlie had just retired and was looking for something new to "obsess" over.
The newsletter has always been an informal, information sharing
publication with all of the subscribers recognizing and treating
each other as family.
The newsletter ceased publication with the November 2014
issue. We anxiously await anyone who wouild like to bring
it back to life. You can subscribe to the website and have
