a list from the State Archives of Baden-Württemberg.
It contains about 260.000 surnames of emigrants from the
South-West of Germany (Baden, Württemberg and Hohenzollern)
whose documents of emigration are still in the archives.
One guesses that about 1.8 million emigrants left South-West
Germany within the 18th and 20th century.

- Click on "Suche nach Auswanderern"
(left column, third line).
