Pennsylvania Dutch? My grandpa always told me I
was PA Dutch as a kid. (I thought he meant I
was part Amish). Anyway, 40 years later, it
was explained to me that our clan married up
with the Dutch in IN in the 1800's--if not before.

Pa Dutch refers to the descendants of the early settlers from southern Germany enticed to Pennsylvania by William Penn. He actually solicited folks from southern Germany to settle Pennsylvania. Most came from an area called the Palatinate. My ancestors came from the Dutchy of Zweibrucken. The families were (and still are to an extent) clannish. They did not speak English and the English settlers and government officials of the time confused the German word "Deutsch" (means German) for Dutch. Maybe it also was because many of the settlers came by way of the ports in Holland or the Netherlands. (Dutch) The Amish are a slightly different story, I understand they came from Switzerland. They speak a slightly different dialect than the variety of low German spoken by the PA Dutch.

I will send you a link I ran into when I first met my husband. We were chatting nonstop and I was researching into everything and anything which would have the word Dutch in it. So I got this as an 'accident' one and a half years ago.

Here's another site about the Amish.

If only the Amish did dance. The only time I ever saw an Amishman dance is if he dropped something on his foot. :-)
