This is a collection of articles pertaining to the European origins of Pennsylvania German immigrants which originally appeared in the magazine Pennsylvania Folklife, successor to The Pennsylvania Dutchman. Virtually all the emigrants mentioned in this work are cited with reference to church, parish, & provincial records & other records located in the archival repositories of the old Palatinate & adjoining provinces in southwest Germany; & these emigrants are cited again, where possible, with reference to a corresponding range of Pennsylvania source materials, notably church records, wills, & tax lists. In addition, names of emigrants are collated with Strassburger & Hinke's celebrated Pennsylvania German Pioneers, from which are drawn dates of arrival, names of ships, & other evidence of immigration.
