RHINELAND EMIGRANTS: Lists of German Settlers in Colonial America. Edited by Don Yoder. Paperback, 1998, 3rd, Illus., Index, 182 pp.
The publisher writes: This is a collection of articles pertaining to the European origins of Pennsylvania German immigrants which originally appeared in the magazine Pennsylvania Folklife, successor to The Pennsylvania Dutchman. Virtually all the emigrants mentioned in this work are cited with reference to church, parish, and provincial records and other records located in the archival repositories of the old Palatinate and adjoining provinces in southwest Germany; and these emigrants are cited again, where possible, with reference to a corresponding range of Pennsylvania source materials, notably church records, wills, and tax lists. In addition, names of emigrants are collated with Strassburger and Hinke's celebrated Pennsylvania German Pioneers, from which are drawn dates of arrival, names of ships, and other evidence of immigration. What a great book for anyone researching their German ancestors!
