________________________________________________________________

Germany, as a country, has not existed for long. Prior to 1871, what is now Germany was a number of separate states such as Wurttemberg, Prussia, Bavaria, etc. whose boundaries changed frequently as a result of war and other causes. The Palantinate was one of these states, and was located along the Rhine River, roughly where the modern German state of Rhineland Phalz is located.

In the 18th and the early 19th century, the term "Palatine" was used in America to describe immigrants from the Palatinate and other adjoining German speaking areas. Finding an American reference to someone being from the Palatinate may not point to a specific place of origin, but rather an approximate region in or near western or southern Germany.

Some of the Palatines that came to North America did not come directly from what is now Germany. They may have been spending time in other countries, including Switzerland.[Kansas Gillenwaters 1361907.FTW]
