This books considers the ancestry of four immigrant families. The first is the family of Nicholas Jäger (Yager). He was born ca. 1678 to Paul Jäger. He married in 1706 in Marienthal, Germany, to Anna Maria Sieber. He and his family came to Virginia in 1717. The next family belongs to Johann Michael Stoltz (John Michael Stolts). His ancestry is complicated by the German records having two families with a father of that name and not enough information to identify which is the family who immigrated. The third family is that of Laurentius Greys (Lawrence Crees). He married Maria Euphrosina Schott in 1709 in Stuttgart, Germany. He and his family moved to Virginia ca. 1720. The last family belongs to Heinrich Friedrich Beyerbach (Henry Frederick Beyerback). He was born in 1684 to Hans Georg and Sabina (Betz) Beyerbach in Windischbach, Germany. He married Anna Maria ca. 1715 and with his family came to Virginia ca. 1717.

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