Ancestry.com. 19th-Century Emigration from Kreis Simmern (Hunsrueck), Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany to Brazil, England, Russian Poland, and USA [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations Inc, 2006.Original data: Smith, Clifford Neal. 19th-Century Emigration from Kreis Simmern (Hunsrueck), Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany to Brazil, England, Russian Poland, and USA. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 2004.
Mr. Smith extracted the names in the Simmern Kreis/Rhineland-Falz booklet from two articles published in Germany in 1935 and 1938. Approximately 56% of these individuals emigrated to the U.S., 37% to Brazil, and 5% to England. In this work, the author has arranged the names according to hometown of origin and, thereunder, by the country of destination. In most cases, we learn the emigrant's name, year emigrated, occupation, date of birth, and frequently, the city or state of destination. The roughly 2,500 persons named in the volume, whose dates of emigration span the last 70 years of the 19th century, are easily found by means of the surname index at the back.
