About this title

Synopsis:

Ed by Samuel Urlsperger. Translated by Dr. George Fenwick Jones and others. Vol 1-18 (1733-1760). Vol. 18 (1995) is described below. #1531-1548

In 1731 all remaining Protestants, a total of 21,475 people, were driven from Salzburg (now in Austria) by an Edict of Expulsion issued 31 Oct 1731 by Roman Catholic Archbishop Leopold von Firmian. Those without land were given eight days to leave; those with land were given one to three months following the forced sale of their goods. These Protestant emigrants, known to us today as Salzburgers, were primarily Lutheran. Several hundred of them settled in Georgia in 1734, and the Detailed Reports give translated accounts of the affairs of the Georgia Salzburger settlers for the period 1733-1760. The complete list of all 21,475 Lutheran Expellees is given in #1877.

This is an important primary source for students of Germanic genealogy in America's South, for colonial historians generally, and for all others interested in 18th century Lutheran affairs. These eighteen volumes offer a firsthand account of the daily lives of some of Georgia's earliest, most extraordinary, and most industrious settlers.
