German Immigrants

Birthplaces of German-Speaking Immigrants in Hamilton County, Ohio
Records 1840 - 1929 (Print or PDF)
Birthplaces of German-Speaking Immigrants in Hamilton County, Ohio Records 1840-1929 
Published 2022. Paperback, 847 pp. This index contains the names of over 30,100 individuals who emigrated from German-speaking areas to Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Ohio, and were referenced in various records between 1840 and 1929. The source material for this work include newspaper death notices, cemetery records, fraternal organization records, church baptism and burial records, emigration records found in German websites, and published histories of Hamilton County, Ohio. The publication contains the name of the immigrant, the date of the record and page number to lead the researcher to the original source record, their age, and the indicated place of birth. Many of these towns are not in present-day Germany, but are locations where many German-speaking immigrants originated (e.g., Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Hungary, etc.). In the case where a woman’s maiden name is recorded, it has been extracted and these names are sorted in a separate index for easy cross-reference. Due to the size of the publication, it has been divided into two softbound books.
NOTE: Some of the local Cincinnati German newspaper death notices had the decedent’s birth place listed, as described on the Death Notices & Obituaries page. These are included in this new index also.
