These books were photographed from the archives in Warsaw and concern the establishment of colonists in the country towns of the chamber department of Posen. One of the books below (Namentliches Verzeichnis) is a quite comprehensive list of colonists in the Ämter.

While this does not cover the province of Pomerania, Posen was nearby, and it could be expected that there was movement between the two regions.
