Speaker: James Baker, PhD, CG
This presentation describes the two significant waves of German emigration to the US, (a) from 1693 to 1790, and (b) from the early 1800's to 1914. Departure and arrival ports and their data are spotlighted along with key online sites that are helpful for identifying emigrating ancestors. The major immigration books are also discussed.
