all LICHT/LIGHT/etc. immigrants in Egle (1890)
Posted by: Diana Gale Matthiesen (ID *****0513) Date: February 21, 2003 at 23:50:49
In Reply to: John and Peter LICHT/LIGHT/etc. immigrants by Diana Gale Matthiesen of 2090

Unlike Broderbund CD-354, "Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1538-1940, from Gale Research, Inc." (see prior message), which contains merely an index to sources (including Egle 1890), Broderbund CD-512, "Pennsylvania Colonial Records," contains the full text of several works, including:

William Henry Egle, ed. 1890. "Names of Foreigners Who Took the Oath of Allegiance to the Province and State of Pennsylvania, 1727-1775, with the Foreign Arrivals, 1786-1808." Pennsylvania Archives, ser. 2, v. XVII, Harrisburg, PA (reprinted 1967/76 by Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD; issued 2000 on Broderbund CD-512).

Below are verbatim quotes of the LICHT/LIGHT/etc. entries from Egle (1890) on this CD. Note that most lists span several pages; that there were two copies of some lists, one of which contained ages of the passengers; that only males 16 years of age or older were required to take the Oath of Allegiance; and that females and children under age 16 were rarely listed. Because of the number of Germans flooding into Pennsylvania (mostly through the port of Philadelphia), it was deemed necessary to have them swear an oath of allegiance to the British Crown, lest their numbers enourage any thought of forming an independent German colony.
