GEORGE Wed Nov 619:42:19 1996
My great grandparents, Nicholas & Johanna George; from what I'm told moved from Alsace Lorraine (Northeastern France), or possibly Luxembourg, to Buffalo, New York at some point in the 1860's. I'm also told that many Georges moved from Europe at the same time. Nicholas & Johanna George moved from Buffalo, New York to Southeastern Kansas in the late 1860's, early 1870's. In 1911, the family moved to a small farming community here in Western Canada; Killam, Alberta. I'm looking to make contact with any Georges living in New York state that think they might have the slighest connection to what I've provided here, in terms of European roots of the George family.

GERMAN Wed Mar 5 14:21:27 1997
Am trying to find any info on John German,Sr., 1740 - 1800. We believe he was one of the German settlers in the Palatine immigrations, or possibly a mercenary with the British Armny. We know that he was a British loyalist and moved to Canada after the Revolution. He married Mary Ryckman. Have no idea where he lived in the US before moving to Canada, but it seems likely it was New York or Pennsylvania. Any info on this, or on the German family in general? We suspect that the name is a revision of the original.
