The Nabinger Family that originated in Southwest-Central and Western Germany on the border with France can trace its history origins back to the earliest part of the 1600’s. In the 1740’s some members of the Family emigrated to the United States of America where one branch of the Family continued the use of the Nabinger spelling of the name. Another branch of the Family which immigrated to the Unites States changed the spelling of the name to Novinger. Another immigration went to Brazil where the original spelling of the Family name was retained. Now we have a sizeable number of Nabingers in Brazil.

In 1825 Paul Nabinger, who was born in Feinsheim, Hesse, Germany, arrived in Brazil. He took 3 sons with him to Brazil, but we don’t know whether his wife went with him or where and when she died. In Brazil Paul Nabinger married again and most of the Brazilian Nabingers are descendants of this second marriage.

Recently we have made contact with our Nabinger Cousins in Brazil and several of them have joined our Facebook Group: “Novinger & Nabinger Family Network”. We are very pleased to have established contact with our Family in Brazil and we invite all the Brazilian Nabingers to join our Group at the following link:
