Excerpt

This somewhat small, compact volume owes its origin to a quest which I instituted in 1928 primarily to get genealogical data relative to Matthias Heim (1769-1838), of Freeburg, Pennsylvania, as briefly recounted in the last chapter. At the same time, and additionally, I obtained all the information of interest and importance that I conveniently could about what I have designated "Pennsylvania-German Land"; about its people, some of its old and historic buildings, its churches and schools, farming and county fairs, with some material for comparisons. The sixty-five illustrations are reproductions of selections from photographs which I took to supplement my observations, and I imagine that they will constitute a goodly portion of the interest and value of the book.

It may also be well to state further that this first edition, printed on permanent all-rag paper, is limited to five hundred copies.
