This book gives the ancestry of five families who came to Virginia in 1717. The first family is the family of Johann Georg Scheible (Sheible). He was born in 1670 in Neuenbürg, Baden, Germany, to Nicolaus and Anna Catharina (Neydekh). He married ca. 1696 to Maria Eleonora [Berger?] and came to America with her and three children. The second family is the Beckh (Peck) family. This family of Lorenz Beckh is listed as leaving Gemmingen, Baden, Germany, but does not show on the importation lists. People with this surname occur in the area. The same problem occurs with the next family which is the family of Hans Michael Mühleckher (Milcker). The fourth family is actually two families, the families of Hans Michael and Matthäus Schmidt (Smith). These two men were brothers born in Gemmingen, Baden, Germany, in 1689 and 1692 respectively. Their parents were Michael and Maria Barbara Schmidt. The last family is the Holt family. Michael Hold (Holt) was born in 1696 to Martin and Anna Maria (Brickhmann) Hold in Stetten am Heuchelberg, Germany. He came to America with his mother and stepfather, Johann Späth (Spade).

The Germanna colony was located in Spotsylvania County but may also have been in part of Orange County, Virginia.
