A phenomenal documenation of emigration from Gomaringen

Buch "Das Glück in der Fremde gesucht" Gomaringer Auswanderer 1679 - 1957

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”
Gomaringer Auswanderer
1679 – 1957

Editor: Geschichts- und Altertumsverein Gomaringen e.V.
Publischer: Gomaringer Verlag & Druck GmbH
ISBN: 978-3926969-35-4

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”.
