Germans to America Volume 7 - October 1848-December 1849


N
umerous books contain listings of immigrants from Germany to America in nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The most remarkable is the series of 67 volumes, Germans to America: Lists of Passengers Arriving at U.S. Ports, by Ira A. Glazier and William P. Filby. The two series of volumes cover 1840 to 1897.

These volumes are invaluable to genealogists seeking to find the year and date their ancestors arrived in America, the ship they sailed on, and their places of origin. Like all records, however, these volumes are not perfect, as discussed in a critique of the Glazier/Filby volumes.

Nonetheless, these volumes are worth owning or consulting at major libraries that hold them. Here then are the books that contain information on German immigrants to America.
