 "The alphabettical listing gives many dates and places of  birth and the date of immigration, name of parents or spouse, and destination in America.  All with references to the German records.  This includes all of the surrounding towns and villages, including Freren and  Lengerich where my ancestors came from.  What surprised me is finding the families that these children married into once they immigrated to St. Louis are from the same towns, which makes it likely that these   families knew each other back in Germany.
