A majority, perhaps, of the information in this book comes from manuscripts and documents held in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City as well as the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Massachusetts Archives in Boston. Extensive “memorials” were also obtained from the Moravian Archives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Archives in Wiesbaden were searched for Manumission records and other pertinent manuscripts. Although the Family History Library in Salt Lake City has extensive microfilm holdings of German Parish records, there are many Parishes for which the microfilming, for various reasons, has not been done. Those parishes needed to be searched in Germany personally, or by a researcher. Following are the main documents from these repositories that were used in this compilation.
