The lists making up this remarkable work try to identify German emigrants in their homeland and in Pennsylvania. Thus they are cited with reference to manumission records, parish registers, passports, and other papers of German and Swiss provenance, and noted again, where possible, with reference to an equivalent range of Pennsylvania source materials, notably church records, wills, and tax lists. The emigrants are frequently listed in Strassburger and Hinke’s “Pennsylvania German Pioneers,” from which are drawn dates of arrival, names of ships, and other immigration evidence.
Lists Consolidated from Yearbooks of The Pennsylvania German Folklore Society
