Following are some items that were mentioned during the 4 April 2013 Fieldstone Common interview with Henry Z. Jones, author of The Palatine Families of New York and Psychic Roots.
The podcast of the interview is now available.
The Palatine Families of New York, published by Picton Press, is available for purchase from major books sellers online as well as directly from Henry Z. Jones.
The Palatines were a group of people who left what is now Germany in the early 1700s on route to the American colonies via London. Some of the Palatines ended up settling in Ireland while others made it to New York in 1710.
Hank Jones explained that Palatine in this time period refers to German speaking from anywhere and not necessarily specifically to the Palatine region.
