Beatrice Burst and Birgit Walliser-Nuber have opened a new chapter in the documentation of emigration from the former Kingdom of Wuerttemberg.
In their recently released book
“Das Glück in der Fremde gesucht”
1679 – 1957
they have documented around 6.500 – 7.000 emigrants from Gomaringen, Hinterweiler and Stockach, very often also with additional information about their destiny and their settlement. In many cases they also provide pictures from the emigrants of their living.
For any researcher interested in emigration this book is a must. Unfortunately it is in German only.
“Beatrice I’m completely overwhelmed”.
