A Biographical Sketch gives a more personal account of the life of an emigrant than is possible in the format used for the regular entries on this website. Information in these sketches comes from obits, books, such as county histories, or descendants.*

*Anyone wishing to contribute a biographical sketch of an emigrant ancestor from Emsland is welcome to do so. Please send it to Barbara Salibi (contact information can be found at bottom of Home page.)
