About the IP-SIG

In 2008 the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) established a Special Interest Group for Irish Palatines (IP-SIG).  This was the first SIG within OGS and is open to anyone interested in exploring the common heritage of German Protestant origins and subsequent migration from the Rhineland-Palatinate to Ireland.

As a Special Interest Group within the OGS, the IP-SIG will:

  • develop regular communications with its members
  • offer educational sessions at the annual OGS conference
  • provide opportunities for the members to gather together
  • produce occasional publications to inform its members of Irish Palatine history and genealogy.
