Palatines to America, Pennsylvania Chapter, has published its newsletter, Penn Pal, since 1978, soon after the chapter’s formation. Since then, nearly 1,400 pages of information have been published, including:
- Hundreds of queries from members
- Abstracts of church records
- Information about Germany and its states
- Profiles of PA Chapter members
The entire run of Penn Pal, including three newsletters published before the newsletter bore that name, have now been published on one, word-searchable CD-ROM.
Non-members can purchase the CD for $20 ($18.87 plus PA sales tax of $1.13) but the best news is:
The CD-ROM is included as a member benefit for PA Chapter members – new or renewal for the membership year that started 1 October 2009.
About Pennsylvania Chapter, Pal Am
The Pennsylvania Chapter began on 15 October 1977 when 14 people who were interested in forming a state chapter of the National Society, Palatines to America, met to organize. Six of them volunteered to serve on a steering committee to help guide the new Chapter. The Pennsylvania Chapter has members throughout the country and in several nations around the world. If you are not a member, we invite you to join us in our research of German-speaking ancestors. Contact the Chapter for a Membership Form.
