The initial goal of this site was to encourage and facilitate access to the large collection of genealogy information compiled and
published by the Snell-Zimmerman-Timmerman Reunion (SZT). It features an integrated pedigree of all known descendants and ancestors of the Zimmerman and Snell
families who came from the Palatine region of Germany in the early 1700s and settled in the Mohawk Valley of upstate New York. The pedigree includes several
other Palatine families who intermarried with those Zimmerman and Snell families. Since the initial online posting of the SZT pedigree, it is being continually
extended to additional Zimmerman and Snell descendants through submissions from interested readers. We encourage you to follow links to the Database Introduction and
learn how to augment and update the pedigree. You also can find more information about the Reunion and its publications via the menu to the left.

built by German immigrants from the Palatine region of Germany. Photo taken by Rev. Lewis H. Butler, Pastor in October 1898
