This second series of Germans to America, which covers 1840-49, closely follows the format of the first sixty-seven volumes, which covered January 1850 through June 1897. Lists of occupation codes, village codes, and destination codes, along with a map of the German states before 1871, set the stage for 354 pages of passenger lists. These are followed by a 151-page alphabetical index.
