2 vol; 684pp & 690pp. 45 illus. 30,000 entry Every Name index plus German place name index. 2010 (2001) (1995)(1985). Now in its fourth printing, this classic two volume set is a mainstay of all New York Germanic research, as well as much of New Jersey's! In the decade since winning the prestigious Jacobus Award the author has spoken before many societies and conferences, and is widely known and admired for his work on German immigrants to colonial America. Hank Jones' massive two volumes fully document the account of all 847 Palatine families who came to colonial New York from Germany in 1710. The volumes trace the American descendants of many of them down to the American Revolution. Also included is the German ancestry, often back into the 17th century, for over 500 of the 847 families! Much of the German research was done by the late Carla Mittelstaedt-Kubaseck, working from the original records in Germany which have never been microfilmed. Any student of the great Germanic migrations needs this large and meticulously compiled two-volume set.

About the Author:

Henry Z (Hank) Jones, Jr., F.A.S.G., has been actively climbing the family tree since he was eight years old. After his graduation from Stanford University, Hank had a twenty-year career first as a recording artist on RCA Records, then as an actor, appearing in eight Walt Disney films and many television shows that still come back to haunt him today via cable tv. His years of work pursuing and documenting 18th century German Palatine emigrants have resulted in several books, including The Palatine Families of New York - 1710 (Jacobus Award winner as Best Genealogical Book of the Year), The Palatine Familes of Ireland, More Palatine Families, Westerwald To America, the three-volume Even More Palatine Families, and his best-selling Psychic Roots: Serendipity & Intuition in Genealogy (featured on NBC-TV's Unsolved Mysteries) and its new sequel More Psychic Roots: Further Adventures in Serendipity & Intuition in Genealogy. He has served both as a Director of the Genealogical Speakers' Guild and as a Trustee of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Hank recently received the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society in recognition of distinguished work in genealogy. In 1986 he was honored to have been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, of whom there are only fifty in the world, and in 2013 Hank was elected a Fellow of the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society.
