Saltzburghers to Georgia

Saltzburgh, Austria
This is the beautiful town of Saltzburgh where protestants were inflicted with severe persecution during 1722 by the Catholic Church and given two weeks to remove themselves.  A congregation of hundreds of persons took the journey into England and the Netherlands.  As they travelled, searching for homes, the group finally dissipated into about one hundred persons when James Edward Oglethorpe heard of them and offered them a home in the new colony of Georgia.  They settled in a place north of Savannah called Ebenezer.  Many of these biographies have been written by Jeannette Holland Austin (some families traced) and are included in Georgia Pioneers under "Biographies". (membership required).  Also, hundreds of other genealogies are included on the website.
