"In the 19th century, nearly six million Germans emigrated. Most of them never saw Germany again. Using the example of the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, this book explains the German perspective during the time of emigration. Learn what it was like for your ancestors to leave their homeland. Many people of German ancestry are not familiar with the details of life in Germany in the 19th century. How our ancestors said goodbye, how they traveled to port cities and onward to their destinations, how they prepared for their journey to America -- all of these questions and more are answered. This book includes instructions about how to find emigrants from the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach in German local newspapers, church records, and archives, giving you the tools you need to search for your own lost ancestors."--Back cover
