This project is intended to advance the genealogy of all relatives of the surnames shown, especially descendants (and ancestors) of those who arrived in New York in 1710 with the Palatine immigration from Germany. One primary goal is to determine whether or not the New Jersey and New York families are related. Both Y-DNA and Family Finder tests should help to provide proof. Please review the tabs above and at the side for more information. You are encouraged to use the Group Activity Feed to comment, pose questions, add photos, or otherwise expand your interaction with other group members to enhance the value of this project for your own genealogy.
