German Immigration to Brazil Period from 1824 to 1830 – Project 2017-2024
(Using Google Translator. Sorry for any errors.)
The period from 1824 to 1830 is considered the official beginning of German Immigration in Brazil.
In a work started in 2017 I started researching my ancestors (Feyh/Fey family) and ended up writing a book that deals with ships and passengers from this period.
The motivation for writing the book was due to the fact that there was a lot of mismatched information about both the ships and the passengers of the book.
In these 7 years of the period mentioned there was an initial estimate that 7,000 German immigrants came to Brazil through approximately 35 sailboats.
These immigrants included soldiers and settlers.
The settlers were usually also artisans in a particular specialty, which helped them in surviving themselves and their families.
In turn, the soldiers, after being released from the imperial army, were entitled to a property in Brazil, and many remained here helping in the colonization of the new country.
Regarding the book cited, in the update of 11/15/2019 I reached a number between 10,576 and 10,655 immigrants (including settlers and soldiers). The ships reached a number of 41 sailboats.
At the beginning of 2020 we launched the third edition of the book, with a series of inserts of news and minor corrections.
The book, both in print and electronic version (e-book) is a great research tool for these immigrants, and can search by year, ship and surname of immigrants (as an example).
The information in this book is available at this link German Immigration to Brazil: Ships and Passengers Years 1824 to 1830 3nd Edition (first revision jan 2021).
From 2020 we will concentrate research and writing in 3 basic books, which are an option for those who do not wish to purchase the full version (years 1824 to 1830):
- German Immigration to Brazil: Ships and Passengers Years 1824 and 1825 2a ed jan 2021
- German Immigration to Brazil: Ships and Passengers Years 1826 and 1827 1a ed. (2a ed jun 2021)
- German Immigration to Brazil: Ships and Passengers Years 1827 to 1830 1a ed. (2a ed. nov 2021)
With this we believe we can meet the interest of the reader in a specific period, also reducing the acquisition cost.
The other editions (exclusively for the state of Rio Grande do Sul) will be discontinued.
Any input is welcome.
Thank you in advance for submitting books on the subject and for submitting public documents and articles in the public domain.
The amount collected in book sales is being used to acquire a new bibliography, which has enabled the constant updating of the book in these almost 3 years of research started.
