Clifford Neal Smith originally released this title as German-American Genealogical Research Monograph 12. The booklet includes the German townships of Damme, Holdorf, and Neuenkirchen, which are today part of Niedersachen. Arranged by farming community, it identifies nearly 3,000 persons who emigrated to North America between 1830 and 1849. For the most part, Smith has transcribed each individual's name (sometimes only a surname), the number of persons traveling with that passenger, date of departure, and, sometimes, names of family members, occupation, and destination. A surname index at the back of the work makes finding persons relatively simple. (Much of the information in this volume was originally published in an article prepared from official files.)
