Welcome to the Pennsylvania Chapter of Palatines to America
Did your forebears emigrate to Pennsylvania from a German (aka Palatine) state? Are you interested in those Pennsylvania Germans? This is the place to learn more about them and find tips, clues, and resources to further your research. If your ancestors arrived in Philadelphia during the 1700s, the men were marched from the docks to the courthouse pictured above to sign the Oath of Allegiance (see Links for the Pennsylvania German Pioneer series to learn more). Members have access to additional resources, including searchable newsletters back to the first in 1978. Why not Join Us?
Join the Pennsylvania Chapter, Palatines to America for their Fall Seminar and Annual Membership Meeting. Our speaker for this seminar will be Luana Darby, a professional Genealogist who specializes in Palatine German research. See Events Calendar for more information.
