Share a Collection

Please supply a name for your collection of letters, for example “Georg Schiller Family Letters.”

Please provide any information you have about the immigrant(s) represented in this collection, including their full names, nicknames, the name of the community they were from originally, and the community/communities where they lived after immigrating.

You may upload your Collection Intake Form here (Microsoft Word version; Microsoft Excel version), or you may fill out the information below.

Please any detailed information you may have about the immigrant(s)' scommunity of origin, such as the name of their village or farmstead; or, indicate if the community was known by a German name during the immigrant's lifetime but is now more commonly known by a name in a different language.

If you know the years (or exact dates) which this collection covers, please input this information here. Otherwise, you may give a rough estimate in the next section.

For example, how did the letters descend in your family? Do you know of additional immigrant letter collections that family members, friends, or libraries in your community might have?
