We are trying to guage how much interest there might be for trying to pull together a significant 300th Year Reunion of the Palatine Immigration of 1709. Yes, it would be held in 2009, probably with a series of events commemorating the early years of their settlement in NY. We know this is planning significantly far in advance, but planning just might take that long to do. The 10 or so shiploads of people that came from the Palatinate in 1709 must now have a gazillion descendents.Let me know, we will get the ball rolling. Yes, Bauders were among the early ones.
