The main purpose of this paper is to present a systemic study of some families of multiple Genocchi numbers and polynomials. In particular, by using the fermionic p-adic invariant integral on p, we construct p-adic Genocchi numbers and polynomials of higher order. Finally, we derive the following interesting formula: Gn+k,q(k)(x)=2kk!(n+kk)l=0d0+d1++dk=k1,di(1)l(l+x)n, where Gn+k,q(k)(x) are the q-Genocchi polynomials of order k.
