An enormous reference on the history of the Schwenkfelder church and the genealogies of the families that emigrated to America in the 1730's. Early settlers kept diaries and record books, and in the late 19th century there was a revival of interest amongst the church that resulted in many ancient records being found and secured. Their study enabled the production of this work.
