With this quotation, Hans RoeBler began his research about Wilhelm Loehe and his work on immigration to North America in the nineteenth century. It comes from a report that was written by the first group of immigrants under the leadership of Pastor friedrich Craemer and was sent to Wilhelm Loehe after their arrival in North America. The report about their experience was published in the paper "News about and from North America," which was established in 1843 by Wilhelm Loehe and his friend, Friedrich Wucherer, a pastor in Noerdlingen, to get financial resources for what was referred to as "North America work," This article is about immigration to Frankenmuth and North America employing the resources of archives. I will demonstrate some different possibilities about how one can do such research employing the materials in different archives. A glance at the material in libraries and archives shows us that there are many different resources for this theme.
