When the Dublin Public Record Office in the Four Courts was destroyed in 1922, every original will deposited there was lost with the exception of one Consistorial and eleven Prerogative Will Books. Fortunately genealogists had made copies and abstracts of many thousands of these wills and either published them or presented them to libraries. This book is a guide to the whereabouts of these copies and abstracts. The work is based on materials found (1) at the Society of Genealogists, London; (2) in the Prerogative Will Books that were saved; (3) in a list of a few early wills deposited in England; and (4) in wills contained in journals and family histories. It is arranged alphabetically by the surname of the testator, followed by the date of probate, place of residence, sometimes occupation, and source. About 4,000 wills are cited altogether.
Published in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America, this work vividly describes the German role in the discovery, exploration, and early settlement of America. Legend says that Tyrker accompanied Leif Ericson to the New World and thus, was the first German in North America. The first Germans to land in what would become the United States, arrived at Port Royal, South Carolina, in 1562. Group immigrations began in the 1600s. This work also describes the conditions in Germany prior to 1700 which contributed to the German immigrations to America and includes several facsimile title-pages of books published in Europe in the 17th century which encouraged immigration. Part One includes the Introduction; The Life and Work of Julius Friedrich Sachse; and, German-American Studies, 1492–1992, and Beyond. Part Two includes a Historical Introduction, At the Close of the Medieval Era, Dawn of the Modern Period, Effect of the Great Discoveries, The Earliest Attempt at German Colonization, The Store of Welserland, The Grants to Anton and Hieronymus Fugger, Religious Causes Inducive to German Emigration, The Thirty Years War, Dutch and Swedish Attempts at Colonization, The French Wars of Conquest, German Emigration to America, Literature Used to Induce German Emigration, and an Appendix. Part Three offers the editor’s conclusion and sources for further study.
