The Old Lutherans of Pomerania and the US  (PRG Meetings)
Another Recorded Meeting
Who and what were the Old Lutherans of Prussia, and where did they emigrate to in the United States? This group of emigrants illustrate many topics in Prussian religious, social, and emigration history. Their lives in the United States had fascinating similarities and differences from other immigrant groups. And to the delight of genealogists, they have been very well studied. If your ancestors were Old Lutherans, you are in luck; if not, their story is still an interesting window into the life of other Pomeranians.
