You have to look for non-conformists, anabaptists, Mennonites,
non-militants, water immersionists, non oath takers vs Quakers and many
other ways. Process of elimination that takes years. Lets get the
historians here to help on this issue.
I do not want to send out confusion or false knowledge or assumptions
made by me! Once I get the brain working here, I will send to the list
the ship lists(many by the way) that can be used. again is like tracing
them backwards or using a clue like Krefeld, Marienborn, Langnau as a way
to find them on ships. Perhaps it may even be that they wanted out of
the Sinsheim/Manheim/Eder river area of Germany and Switzerland , went
with like brethren and got out of Holland fast! Then settled near
Germantown/Philadelphia and then to Ephrata-- the ones I trace left there
quickly and went right to Sinsheim and Jefferson and Codorus valleys,
just like it is in Germany. When we get into research of the Snow Hill
Cloister in Waynesboro plus the Ephrata Cloister, I sorta lose interest.
I am not a follower of Beissel, Arnold and others of the fundamentalist
brethren attitude. Maybe not even Mack follower but only Peter Becker,
Martin Urner, Martin Garber and the Saylor. Who knows? Will send sites
tomorrow as am on brain overload answering emails here.

I have found only a few listings for ships carrying Brethren to PA and MD
before 1727. Can anyone tell me if there is an online or book source
listing ships from 1700 to 1727?
