Indiana Chapter of Palatines to America
State of Indiana

Mission / Purpose

 
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.
 
Our goals are to promote interest and study of the emigration of the "Palatines" and other German-speaking people to North America and to exchange information relating to the life, times and society of German-speaking peoples and their descendants.
