    Most of the Pennsylvania Germans did come from Germany, although there were groups from the Netherlands and the Tyrol.
    The great bulk of them, including some of my ancestors were from the group Benjamin Franklin called "Those Palatine boors".  Which is actually kind of funny because there is a very good chance that my English ancestors on the other side of the family actually knew Franklin.  Guess I know where you're coming from.
