Meyer/Mayer/etc. on ships to PA

Posted: 30 Mar 2002 1:30PM GMT
Classification: Query
I compiled this list for my personal use because of my Moyers and Myers lines. I'm glad to share it in hopes it will help someone. I tried to be as accurate as possible, but I could have missed someone. Gale

Names found on ships' lists at the Olive Tree site.

"# " Ships' lists were not at the Olive Tree site and were found in:

30,000 NAMES GERMAN, SWISS, DUTCH, FRENCH AND OTHER IMMIGRANTS IN PENNSYLVANIA FROM 1727 - 1776, by Daniel Rupp.

According to German naming customs, a family might give the SAME 1st name (or two) of a favorite saint or deceased family member to all their sons and daughters. Johan / Johann and Hans were male favorites for the 1st names. These sons and daughters were never called by these 1st names but were called by their middle names. Therefore, each Johan/Johann or Hans listed could have never gone by that name. The spelling Johannes was used as a (2nd) given name.
