One of the most important books published on German-Speaking immigrants in years! Brigitte Burkett has compiled an exhaustive account of the German ancestry and departure for America of 435 families and individuals from the Baden Durlach area. Fully 351 of these families are conclusively identified, with details on their lives and ancestry given, while a further 84 are tentatively identified. Signatures of most of the heads of families are included in this book, as are a few details of life in America - although it is German research which is the heart of this book, not American.
A magnificent added bonus is the inclusion here of three previously unpublished ship passenger lists! One of these, for the Elisabeth which arrived in 1753, has the largest amount of information ever found in a ship's list.
