This database is from the book series “Germans to America, lists of passengers arriving at U.S. ports” that was published in the 1990s. There are limitations to this database (it does not include every “German” who immigrated to the United States during the time period stated and may not include smaller, minor ports), but it is a starting point. The FAQ provides more details on the database for those who are unfamiliar with it.
