'....It was most likely this publication in the Colonial Records that drew the attention of I. Daniel Rupp, the well-known historian of Pennsylvania to the lists. At any rate, in 1856, he published a book, entitled A Collection of Thirty Thousand Names of German, Swiss, Dutch, French and Other Immigrants in Pennsylvania from 1727 to 1776, etc. It contained the names of all the males of sixteen years and upwards, in the body of the book, the children's names being given in an appendix. In 1875 and later, other editions appeared, which Rupp calls "carefully revised and much improved." The improvement consisted in the fact that the names of the children under sixteen years were inserted, in the case of each ship, with which children are given, immediately under the names of the adults. Rupp also added sixteen appendices and an 'Interpretation of the Baptismal Names.'

The headings were made up by Rupp from the Colonial Records, or condensed from the actual headings as found on the lists. In this attempt to condense many slips were made, only a few of which need to be mentioned, by way of example. Occasionally he omitted the name of the ship. Thus in No. 43, he states that 110 persons were imported in the brigantine Perth-amboy, which should be, in the brigantine John, of Perth am-boy. In list 141, he omits both the name of the ship as well as the captain, the ship was Lydia and the captain John Randolph (See our No. 142).
