Data Interpretation

The database "Emigration from Southwest-Germany" contains about 260.000 family names. The overall number of emigrants in the database is higher because family members are subsumed in one surname entry. The database covers the period between the middle of the 18th and the beginning of the 20th century. We give an overview over the numbers of emigrants that left the southwestern area in a certain time. As the data interpretation for destinations illustrates, emigrants from Southwest-Germany settled in all four corners of the earth.
