From the early 18th century to the beginning of the 20th, many residents of the Wuerttemberg area in southern Germany felt compelled to leave their homeland. More than 800,000 people who emigrated from this region eventually came to the United States. This collection combines onto one CD, seven comprehensive volumes of information assembled from the records of their journeys.
Unparalleled Access with AncestryView
The records in this collection roughly span the years 1717-1917. The data was first extracted from the original emigration records filmed at Ludwigsburg for the printed edition. This electronic version offers access and ease of use that is simply unparalled in the original documents (now on microfilm) or in print. By combining the formatting of the printed series with the AncestryView environment and query capabilities, researchers of all experience levels can now easily find valuable information in seconds.
Records include names of principle emigrant, spouse and children where applicable, application and emigration dates, and Oberamt which is the equivalent of a District Town or County Seat.
