This online edition of the book "Genealogy of the Reno/Reneau Family in America, 1600-1930" has been a collaboration between Sue Reneau Damewood and Steven Fancy. Due to work commitments, Steve has taken a few years off from genealogy. The goal is to compile a family tree on the Reno/Reneau family, in conjunction with distant relatives, that is as accurate and complete as possible. I have been conducting research on the Reno/Reneau family for more than 30 years, and our databases have been merged to produce one of the most complete and accurate family trees ever to be compiled. To make this book manageable, it mostly includes persons born before 1930. I have a database of more than 65,000 family members, and persons interested in more recent information and details on relatives with other surnames can contact me directly at for a report on their branch of the family.

This book extends the life-long works of Guy B. Reno, Dr. William L. Reno, Jr., and Sherman Reno by adding information from thousands of additional sources. It corrects errors in the earlier works, and documents that the original immigrant forefathers of the Reno family in America were brothers Lewis and Benjamin Reynaud who arrived in Stafford County, Virginia, between July and October 1688.

I encourage anyone with new or corrected information on family members to contact me so I can build as complete a family as possible.
