Overview

Provides both genealogists and researchers of family history with the first extensive, indexed source of German surname immigrants. This entire project was planned to span the years 1850 through 1893, but now the series has been extended. The series reproduces information from the original passenger lists filed by all vessels entering U.S. ports from abroad. Ships that departed from German ports or carried passengers who declared themselves to be of German origin are included, with first and last names, age, sex, occupation, and province and village of origin (whenever available) provided for each emigrant. A complete index of names is included at the end of every volume. Germans to America may be ordered by individual volume. Standing orders, which receive a 10% discount, are also welcomed.

Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual (ARBA)
This seventh volume of Germans to America—Series II follows the previous Series I in providing absolutely essential statistical information on one of this country's most significant immigrant populations, both for scholars in the fields of history and genealogy, as well as for laypeople interested in family genealogy. It is most highly recommended for public and academic research libraries.
National Genealogical Society Quarterly
This second series of Germans to America, which covers 1840-49, closely follows the format of the first sixty-seven volumes, which covered January 1850 through June 1897. Lists of occupation codes, village codes, and destination codes, along with a map of the German states before 1871, set the stage for 354 pages of passenger lists. These are followed by a 151-page alphabetical index.
