Re: your original post

Switzer is definitely a Palatine surname. The family goes a long way back, and settled in the Rathkeale area, which includes Adare. Try looking for a book called "Switzers All My Fathers Were". It's on microfilm through the LDS church. The film number is FHL US/CAN Film
973249 Item 2.

This is a very good book and gives a good background on the Irish Palatines:

There is also an Irish Palatine group through the Ontario Genealogical Society:

Hope this helps.
