Four separate, complete lists of all 22,000 Lutherans expelled from Salzburg (Austria) in 1731. 800pp. 15,528 entry index to family and individual names. 1999. #1877 $69.95

In the course of the long Catholic-Protestant struggle waged throughout Europe between the Reformation and 1800, none had so decisive an outcome as that in Salzburg, now a south central province in Austria. Because the local ruler was Catholic, there was intense pressure on all Protestants (e.g. Lutherans) throughout Salzburg to either convert to Catholicism or to leave Salzburg. Very few Lutherans were willing to convert, and in 1723, 30,000 Lutherans fled Salzburg. Then, in 1731, Roman Catholic Archbishop Count Leopold Von Firmian issued his famous "expulsion order" which ordered all remaining Protestants, a total of 22,000 men, women and children to leave Salzburg immediately. Some three hundred of them emigrated to Georgia in the American colonies, but the bulk of the emigrants settled in the other Lutheran principalities, especially in East Prussia. In later years many of their children and grandchildren became ‘delayed' emigrants to America.

This important volume (never before published in English and never microfilmed) for the first time ever brings researchers the original lists of all 22,000 expelled, with the full names (even including wives' maiden names) and ages of everyone involved, coupled with their village of origin; even and giving family relationships if the surname was different. It also includes an exact reference to the unpublished archival records which in turn give an incredible wealth of further details, including occupation, all possessions owned at the time of expulsion, who bought them and at what price, etc.

All in all, we believe this is the largest, most complete, and most detailed immigration list ever published!
