Authors' Note

This book is not a complete history of the early settlers from Neustadt in Detroit and vicinity. Hundreds of letters and personal interviews, and many articles in both the Detroit News and The Abend Post failed in our efforts to make it as complete as we would have wished. Inasmuch as the first organized party of immigrants came from Neustadt in Kurhessen, we have endeavored to confine ourselves to the court district of this section of Germany. Occasionally a name will appear, or a slight error. In this we beg your kind indulgence, as the time necessary to get out this family history was entirely inadequate. We have gone over family records long forgotten, and pieced together in order to attain our object. We trust this publication will please, and should you perchance be able to give us more data concerning Neustadters forgotten, or other information that might make this book more complete, we earnestly entreat you to forward the information in writing to the committee.

Several memorandum pages in this book will be of service to complete your own family history or in which to place autographs.
