Palatines to America German Genealogy Society publishes queries from its members for "lost" German and German-American ancestors.  Many of these researchers are trying to get back to another generation or correct misinformation found early on by other family members.

Remember in German there are letters that sound very similar and are often use to represent the same name Papp would also be Babb or Pabb, g and k, d and t . 

For fastest results in query searching, use the side menu alphabetical index.  

Using the search box below is helpful if you are looking for all instances of the surname on the website excluding the Ancestor Chart Index and German Origin of Doctors in Indiana. Note names in the Queries may appear at the end of many pages of results.
