Soundex is wonderful, isn't it?

The Hans Gnaegi that many folks descend from in the US came over from Switzerland via France and England to Pennsylvania in 1742. From there the family took off... and we're everywhere...with every spelling you can think of since the Census takers, etc., couldn't spell Gnaegi...and that's not really how it was spelled in the first place.

The Kornegay name is believed by some to have begun in Switzerland, possibly from a name like Gnaegi (via the Swiss spelling which isn't necessarily Gnaegi!), and they moved into Germany and settled later in the Carolina area.

Just thought you'd like to know...

Canaga
Canage
Canega
Conagy
Conaga
Gnaga
Gnagy
Kanage
Knaga
Knagy
Kanagy
Kanaga
Kenaga
Kornegay
Gnaegy

(it just get's deeper and deeper, doesn't it!)


As of this writing there are the following genforums that might help you with a similar sounding name:

Canaga
Canagie
Caneega
Connega
Gnaegi
Gnegy
Kanaga
Knagge



Possible all the same family in some folks eyes...way back when...

Good Luck!
