Germans To America Information


Brought to you by

"In the 1850-1855 volumes, these lists contain a minimum of 80 percent German surnames and are published in their entirety. Starting in 1856 the selection criterion changes to include all ships with German passengers, regardless of the percentage. Unlike the previous volumes, only those calling themselves Germans are now listed; all other passenger names are deleted. It should be noted that after 1856 these German immigrants include those coming not only from German states or territories but also from countries such as France, Switzerland, or Luxembourg."
Volume 10, Introduction

As far as I know the series is being continued as the last 4 volumes listed below were published in January of 2000.

NOTE: Not all German Passengers are found in these books. I have had many lookups result in not finding the passengers requested. It is discouraging, be sure to check for every variation of spelling possible.

What information do these books give you?:
Name, age, and gender of the immigrant, their Occupation, Province/country of residence, Village/town of origin, Dates of travel, Name of the ship, Port they left from, their Destination in the U.S.
