Passengers on the Ben Nevis and Their Families
“Passengers on the Ben Nevis and Their Families” has been an effort to decipher the document that has come to be known as the Ben Nevis List and put forth the most complete and accurate information about the Wendish families aboard the Ben Nevis. It also includes those immigrants and immigrant families who came to Texas directly before and after the Ben Nevis until 1861, when migration stopped during the American Civil War. The purpose of this work is to enable those interested in their roots to connect to their immigrant ancestor and hopefully make the leap to the appropriate town in Germany so they can continue their research.
