Wuerttemberg, Germany Emigration Index has a new Emigration Index for Wuettermberg, Germany that is now available for searching for free at their site. The approximately 60,000 name index is for those people that applied to leave Germany around 1900.

The information contained in this index for each of the names is:
Date and place of birth
Residence at time of application
Date of Application

Ancestry has this caution for those searching the index:
The researcher should be aware of an anglicized spelling change in the United States and check out several spelling possibilities. All names listed are spelled in the most common German way. For instance, a man's name "John" in America can be shown as "Johann" or even "Hans." Place names are all spelled as they will be listed in a German gazetteer or located on a German map.
