Welcome! The major purpose of this site is to encourage and facilitate use of the large collection of genealogy information published by the Snell-Zimmerman-Timmerman Reunion (SZT). With their approval, we have used data from the Reunion's publications to create a large, single pedigree of all known descendants of the Palatine Zimmerman and Snell families that settled in the Mohawk Valley of New York. The pedigree also includes many other Palatine families who intermarried with our target families. We encourage you to read the Database Introduction before using the pedigree. You also can find more information about the Reunion and its publications via the links below.
