Extended Family



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 top.
