Stephanists who emigrated from Saxony to America in 1839

Hello All,

I hope you have a nice weekend !!

I just came across a nice booklet called " Stephanists who emigrated from Saxony to America"..

It shows the hardships the emigrants encountered during their voyage and then a "new" life in the USA.

It has 124 pages, but the mosts interesting ones are at the beginning and
everything is on both, German and English..
It also would be a good exercise to learn the "old German script".. :wink:

Not to many names are listed, but I really enjoyed reading it..

Have fun reading it and "talk" to you later,



I wonder if I could seek some assistance. I have located this record:
