German Palatines [WikiPedia]
The Palatine Project
"Although the primary project initially will be to annotate the passenger lists of the Pennsylvania German Pioneers identified in Strassburger and Hinki's 1727-1808 lists, we plan to eventually annotate and reconstruct (where necessary) lists for New England, Nova Scotia, New York, Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina German settlements as well."

[009] Misc.
"I have read the church records that are in the Archives in Koblenz.  I couldn't read every word but was able to understand most of the words.  Some of the records were written in French.  This was at the time of the French occupation.  I didn't know that the civil records were in Huffelsheim."  S3,
