The Emigration Docs contain images of original  documents pertaining to the 1846 application for "Permission to Leave" by Anna Margaretha (Hofmann) Zellhoefer of Brachbach, Mittelfranken, Bavaria, along with several of her children and friends.

After permission was obtained, that group migrated to Sullivan Township in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, USA.  The youngest son Johann Michael was denied permission at that time, the board ruling that he must first do his military stint (6 years!).  Documents are included then for his own departure in 1853, when he was finally allowed to join his family in Wisconsin.

The copies of the original documents were impossible for me, being handwritten in old German, which is so difficult for anyone who knows little of either the German language or of the old script.

So you will see here the original images, along with with their transcriptions into German and then further translated into English.  A bit slow but I think quite interesting, even for persons not related!

I again leave my eternal thanks to the several people of both Germany and of Austria who worked so hard and so well to help with all the translation work.  Their names will appear along with the results of their efforts.
