The German Immigration into Pennsylvania. Through the Port of Philadelphia, from 1700 to 1775, and the Redemptioners Revolutionary War. Frank R. Diffenderffer. Hardcover, (1900), repr. 2003, New, 328 pp.
This important historical study deals with the background of German immigration, especially that of the Palatines, the causes, migration patterns, the leading figures in the movement, and the disposition of the immigrants. Much of the book deals with the redemptioners, those who bound themselves to service as payment for the trip to America. It covers the types of bond servants and evaluates their role in the development of the German settlements, with accounts of their rise, progress, and place in American Society.
