Germans to America provides both genealogists and researchers of family history with the first extensive, indexed source of German surname immigrants. This entire project was planned to span the years 1850 through 1893, but now the series has been extended. The series reproduces information from the original passenger lists filed by all vessels entering U.S. ports from abroad. Ships that departed from German ports or carried passengers who declared themselves to be of German origin are included, with first and last names, age, sex, occupation, and province and village of origin (whenever available) provided for each emigrant. A complete index of names is included at the end of every volume. Germans to America may be ordered by individual volume. Standing orders, which receive a 10% discount, are also welcomed.
