This book commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Palatine ancestors leaving their homes and moving to Ireland.

The first section describes why and how the Palatines came to make the trek from the Palatinate to Ireland and thence to British North America. The next section contains at least 47 brief family histories. Finally there is an appendix suggesting where you might go to further your Irish Palatinate research.

All the family histories will include information on the family in Ireland, the family who emigrated to North America and the first generation born here.
