One of author Clifford Neal Smith's primary goals has been to rescue buried data pertaining to 18th- and 19th-century German emigration and make it available to researchers. Smith's German-American Genealogical Research Monographs, from which we have reprinted this booklet, was an important instrument for achieving that objective. Smith culled Emigrants from Saxony from two articles by Dr. Herbert Koch, published in 1959 and 1961, that name German emigrants found in official notices compiled in the process of issuing permits to leave Saxony. Mr. Smith has arranged the passengers in alphabetical order, giving their place of origin within Saxony and, in many cases, remarks such as name of spouse, number of offspring, and occupation. Most of these emigrants went to the U.S., others to Brazil or Canada.
