Magnus, I can't tell if you are asking me a question or saying something else...the link you posted goes somewhere I've never been before, but the link in there takes you to the page at the link I posted, which is part of this project page that has all of the links involved with the project listed

https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Palatine_Migration

 

(lol, this is turning into a bit of an advertisement for a project I'm not even working on)

Its just an easy way to see what pages links to the page you thought was good. Normally good pages links to other good pages ;-)

syntax is Special:Whatlinkshere/

Eg.  

Ah ha!!!! Good to know, thank you, and you are right 

"good pages links to other good pages"

Important is that you need to use WIki syntax to link if this qyery should work

Thank you for the compliments to the project bulletin board page and the free promo for the Palatine Migration project, T Counce.  :-D

That Bulletin Board page is kind of an  experiment in communication among project members. It is intended to foster communication within a focused audience (unlike G2G), but all of the communication occurs on WikiTree (unlike a Google Group).

And I'm a bit surprised to see that your Counce ancestors weren't part of the Palatine Migration of the 1700s. At least one family by that name (variously rendered as Kuhns or Kuntz) was among the migrants who left Germany for England in about 1709, but ended up being shunted off to America, where they lived in conditions that impress me as "refugee camps" in the Hudson Valley of New York. They were part of the first wave of the Palatine Migration, which continued through several more decades. Not all of the "Palatines" were from the Palatinate; many came from other German-speaking areas, including your family's ancestral home of Alsace. Many people in North America -- and some in England and Ireland -- have Palatine migrant ancestors and may benefit from collaborative research as part of this project.

No, he was born in Alsace when it was part of France in 1813, so it would have been after the time period you mentioned. And it was after he immigrated here that the name spelling went in a couple of different directions (gotta love the Census Takers), as you can see from his children.
