Welcome to the Pettit Family History and Genealogy Site!

This site contains articles, primary sources, images, Pettit family bibles, Pettit cemetery and grave information, obituaries, family trees, formal research papers, interviews, and other family history matters which focus on the Pettit genealogy and allied families.

The goal is to document and describe the history of various Pettit families in any place or time.  “The First Pettits in America Series”, for instance, highlights several individual immigrants to America in the early years of America.  The Spartanburg County, SC Pettits are a major focus, but this site is not limited to that family.

The bulk of the content of the Pettit research site can be browsed by viewing a list of published articles on the posts page
