Breakthrough in Genealogical Research

     Descendants of the Palatine emigrants who left Germany in 1708-09 and settled in the far reaches of the British Empire, including the Hudson Valley and beyond in New York State, may soon be able to connect with long-lost family members and learn far more about their German roots than they ever thought was possible.

     A Palatine DNA Project has been established that welcomes all direct descendants of these brave and hardy men and women. The goal is to determine if and how these families are related and to reunite those families that were split apart during the great exodus from Germany and resettlement throughout the world. DNA testing can make this possible, and this new Palatine DNA Project will coordinate test results from all companies in an effort to reach this goal. Not only will participants learn about their connections to Germany but they will also learn about their very deep roots, the path their ancestors took out of Africa many thousands of years ago that led them eventually to Germany.

     All that is needed to take part in this important new research effort is to visit the website and order a DNA test if you have not already had one. If you have, instructions for transferring the results and joining the project are explained at the website.

     We would welcome anyone who descends from a Palatine emigrant, as you can see. Your family clearly qualifies. Questions are always welcome. Many thanks for your interest. Write anytime.

Mizer Family


Among the keepsakes of her grandmother Marjorie Matthews Stricker, Nadine Haire found the little 8 page Mizer History. The green book was signed by the owner: "J.E.Mizer, Tunnel Hill, Ohio". James Elmer 7/9, was son of Alfred Lorenzo and Mary Carnahan Mizer.

Marjorie had lovingly served as guardian for her elderly Uncle Elmer and Aunt Ferne, who had no children. Fortunately, she had preserved this family heirloom and grandaughter Nadine was able to recognize it for the precious volume it is.

Revolutionary War Ancestor

     Johann Adam Meiser 3/9 is buried on the hillside overlooking the farms and villiage near Dundee, Ohio. In 1960, a new gravemarker was dedicated by the Wooster Wayne Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. After three generations of Myser's on that property, the Miller's began farming in the Amish tradition, probably in much the same ways as our early ancestors. An early Meiser home has undergone renovation and addition on this farm.

     Adam was the youngest son Johann Michael Meiser 2/2 and Anna Elisabeth Sixt (or Zecht). Born in Millbach, Pennsylvania, he lived in Northumberland, now Snyder County as early as 1780 (ref Snyder Co. Pioneers). As a member of the County Militia, he served in Captain John Sneider's company (ref Pa. Archives 3/23/257).

     He was taken by Indians and held captive for about 18 months (Annals of Buffalo Valley). Recorded as living in a "hewed log cabin" in 1796, he went with Henry Meiser and settled lands near present day Annapolis, Ohio by 1802.

     Adam's first wife had one child. His second, Mary Eckhart, had 13 children. The family included 9 boys and 5 girls.

     In 1819 he receiveds a patent for 160 acres in Paint Twp., Wayne Co., Ohio from President James Monroe. This is the farm where his gravesite is visited by many descendants each year.

Submited by Sue Matthews 9/1 and Emily Wolfe 9/1 who with the guidance of Ruth Frock and the Miller children visited Adam's hillside resting place July 2nd, 2003.

Greetings Charles,
      Attached is a photo of the Meiserville Baseball Team. It is from a postcard I purchased a couple of months ago. It is signed on the back by 7/1 Harry Clayton Meiser, page 748 in the green book. Earlier today, Harry's granddaughter, 9/1 Michele H. Lacina, nee Meiser, informed me that Harry is seated on the right under the gentleman with the bow tie.

      I sent a high resolution scanning to the owner of the Meiserville Inn, and the attached 8 x 10 is now hanging on the wall at the inn. He says, "People really enjoy it."
