Hi folks, today's edition of the Global Gazette had works of The Palatine Families of Ireland - Second Edition
By Henry Z. Jones, Jr.
"Representing 30 years of research, this study of the 1710 Palatine immigrants to Ireland includes documentation on 172 different surnames and for 33 of the families there is an added bonus - establishment of their German ancestry - making that vital but difficult link back into Germany. There is also an addendum on 'possible' Palatine families in Ireland, where documentation is lacking. Many descendants of the 1710 settlers moved later in the 18th century to Canada and America. The Germanic names now often sound 'Irish' and many descendants, whether in Ireland, Canada, or America, are unaware of their heritage. "
The list price (see website below) is in Canadian dollars, and sometimes even with postage it's cheaper than buying from a US firm if you are in America. The Global Gazette also announced a lot of books on Canadian communities.
