York County and German

June Lloyd reports on the prevalence of German in York County. It's not clear to me when the influx occurred. My impression is that the Scots-Irish were the first immigrants, although I know that Pennsylvania had many Germans (if I remember, Benjamin Franklin was worried about whether English or German would be the common language).

Universal York

For any descendant of the Rippey's, the "Universal York" blog written by June Lloyd is good reading. Thanks for the cross link here.
