This book contains mainly emigrants from upper and lower Alsace, but also includes families who migrated through Alsace from Germany, Switzerland and other countries. Many men migrated with their families and sometimes it lists who migrated with who and how many family members. Single men and women are listed also. Many children are listed who migrated without parents. Emigration date is not always the date of emigration but may be the date of application. Surnames are listed through the book in alphabetical order.
