The Simmendinger Register is important in research about Palatine migration to the American colonies.

Ulrich Simmendinger was a Palatine immigrant, arriving on the eighth ship from England to New York about July 4, 1710.[1]

He also appears on the New York subsistence list.[2]

He returned to Germany after about seven years in the American colonies but had taken a census of early Palatine settlements. Once back in Germany he published, in German, his Register; giving the names of heads of families, often the wife's name, the number of children and the settlement they were living in.

The Register is invaluable in identifying and locating Palatine immigrant families. Various transcriptions have been made of the Register, in various formats. Some are available online. Below are several web sites with a transcription of the Register:

Greene County Rootsweb page

Three Rivers local history site

Schoharie County GenWeb site which breaks the list down by settlements in the Schoharie Valley.
