Pennsylvania German Pioneers: A Publication of the Original Lists of Arrivals in the Port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808

Strassburger, Ralph Beaver, LL.D., Pennsylvania German Pioneers, A Publication of the Original Lists of Arrivals In the Port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808, edited by William John Hinke, Ph.D., D.D., Pennsylvania German Society, Norristown, PA, 1934. 3 volumes. Originally published as volumes XLII to XLIV in the series Proceedings and addresses (Pennsylvania-German Society).

Description:

  • Volume 1, 1727 - 1775: A compilation of the records of immigrants arriving at the Port of Philadelphia who took an oath allegiance because they were not British citizens.
  • Volume 2, 1727-1775: Images of the signatures of the arrivals documented in Volume 1.
  • Volume 3, 1785-1808: Lists created in response to a 1785 state law requiring the registration of German passengers arriving at Philadelphia. Also includes indexes to the three volumes.
*Joe Beine, webmaster of germanroots.com, has a nice explanation at https://www.germanroots.com/penngermans.html as to why there is more than one version of some passengers lists. He explains that there were as many as three lists for each ship arriving between 1727 and 1775, but not all lists may have survived. The three lists are the "Captain's List" (the passenger list as prepared by the ship captain), a list of the Oaths of Allegiance to the King, and a list of Oaths of Abjuration from the Pope.
