Announcing Hank Z. Jones' New Book: "The Palatine Families of New York - 1710: A Supplement"

 I received an email from my friend Henry Z. "Hank" Jones, who is an expert on the Palatine Families who came to the Northeast in the 18th century.  He's written several books in the past 40 years about them, and now has a new one.  Hank writes:

"I just wanted you to know that what probably will be my final book on the German Palatines is just out: The Palatine Families of New York - 1710: A Supplement. It contains all my discoveries on the origins of the 847 families made since publication of the original two volume set. I wanted to have all this documented material available in one book to be used as a companion volume to the 1985 set. I started chasing Palatines in 1960 when I was a twenty year old student and Stanford University, and I've never stopped. Sure been FUN!"

The publication information is:


187 pages • Softcover • Complete Index of Names and European Places Of Origin

$39.50, plus $3.50 postage and handling (ISBN 978-1-792-441-2)

I do look forward to seeing this book in a library because I have several of my ancestral families in the earlier books, and there may be more information on them in this book!

I'm sure this will be good and if you have Palatines it will be a must read but for goodness sake, read Hank Z. Jones' 'Psychic Roots: Serendipity and Intuition in Genealogy' book(s) they are amazing and we have ALL had that explainable thing happen to us while researching our ancestors! There are used ones for as little as $4
