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.
