LICHT/LIGHT/etc. immigrants to U.S. (Strassburger & Hinke 1934)
Posted by: Diana Gale Matthiesen (ID *****0513) Date: February 24, 2003 at 05:22:14
In Reply to: John and Peter LICHT/etc. immigrants to America by Diana Gale Matthiesen of 18

Well, it turns out I also have the text of Strassburger & Hinke (1934), on Broderbund CD-267, "Immigration Records: German and Swiss Settlers in America, 1700s-1800s."

Ralph Beaver Strassburger (William John Hinke, ed.). 1934. "Pennsylvania German Pioneers: a Publication of the Original Lists of Arrivals in the Port of Philadelphia, from 1727 to 1808." 2 vols. Pennsylvania German Society, Norristown, PA (reprinted 1966ff by Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD; issued 2000 on Broderbund CD-267).

Below are extracted all the LICHT/LIGHT/etc. entries from the above. I've put the immigrant's names in ALL-CAPPS to make them stand out; they were not so in the original. Most lists spanned several pages. Letters or symbols in brackets in the middle of a name indicate the mark of the signer (for those who could not sign their name).
