Palatines arrive in Philadelphia

On This Day (19 December) in 1798 the Columbia docked in Philadelphia. This is according to a list titled Palatine German Immigrant Ships to Philadelphia 1796-1808 on RootsWeb.

On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.


Locations listed are located in Pennsylvania (USA), unless otherwise noted in post.
