Pennsylvania German Pioneers

German pioneers arriving at Philadelphia between 1727 and 1808


This database contains the original lists of German pioneers who arrived at the port of Philadelphia from the years 1727 to 1808. These lists of early arrivals in Pennsylvania are significant because in none of the other ports of the American colonies, through which German settlers entered, were such lists prepared or preserved. In Philadelphia alone did the authorities insist on the preparation of careful and detailed lists of arrivals. About three hundred family associations, tracking their ancestry to these pioneers, meet annually in Pennsylvania.
