Indiana Chapter PALAM 

The Indiana Chapter was the second state chapter of Palatines to America to be formed. The first organizational meeting was held at a private home in 1976. The first formal meeting of the chapter was held April 16, 1977. The chapter holds a spring meeting and a fall workshop, with a wide variety of speakers and topics. A quarterly chapter newsletter is an additional benefit of membership. Robert A. McDougal, M.D., chapter member and past-president, has compiled indexes of three German groups, the "Athenaeum Turners", the "Indianapolis Gardeners", and the "Pioneers of the North American Turners". These indexes relate to periods dating from 1862 to 1918. For access, please see the Special Features box on the National home page.
