Dr. Marxkors has published a series of books on emigrants from various locations in Germany but the three of interest for this website are those of Emsland - Lingen, Meppen and Huemmling/Aschendorf. The entries provided for the emigrants note date and place of birth and baptism, names of parents, and, when known, information about spouse, marriage, children, emigration and death. The books are available at the St. Louis County Library Headquarters on Lindbergh Blvd in the St. Clair County section R977-389.
