This new edition of the Sensing family genealogy, published in 2011 and re-titled as The Sensing, Saintsing, and Sansing Family, adds more than 260 pages to the previous 336-page edition: The Sensing Family 1705 to Present, chronicled by Mamie Crues Davidson and printed in the mid-1990s.
New material that has been gathered and assembled by Pat K. Sensing and his son Pat II includes updates to the earlier volume, many new photographs, and numerous historical documents. Throughout the preparation of this volume, advances of technology, such as the Internet, enabled a much wider exchange of information than was possible with the tools available in the mid-1990s. As more branches of the family were revealed through this expanded sharing of knowledge, the interconnections to and significance of the Sansing and Saintsing lines was established, hence the renaming of the book to its present title, The Sensing, Saintsing, and Sansing Family.
State-of-the-art image processing software has been used to restore and enhance, as much as possible, the images and text throughout. One example of such is the removal of the dot-screen effect prevalent on photographs accompanying the many newspaper clippings reproduced herein.
