Emigrants from the adm. region of Münster, Westphalia

Hi all,

as I am presently researching in the Borken/Steinfurt region I happened to find a paper on emigrants from the administrative region of Münster, Nordrhein-Westfalen.

Maybe you'll find your ancestors on that list:

And here is a paper on emigrants from the Schöppingen, district of Borken, region with wonderful information on the living conditions during the 19th century and the reasons why so many people went to America and some to Brazil.

Hope this helps someone searching for his German roots.
