"Memorial volume in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the coming of the first colony to Germanna, Va. in 1714, and in honor of other emigrants from Nassau-Siegen who came over later and settled near Germantown and Jeffersonton, Virginia."--T.p.

Emigrants came from the Nassau-Seigen area of Westfalen, Germany, (including the city of Siegen) to Germanna which had been established in Orange County, Virginia. It ceased to exist by the 1730's as the emigrants moved to Germantown in Fauquier County, Jeffersonton in Culpeper County, and the Hebron Church area in Madison County, Virginia. Germantown also no longer exists.

Includes index.

Contains history of emigration, travelogue of Nassau-Siegen, and the genealogy of the emigrants.
