About this webinar

Germans began immigrating to the United States in 1683, according to documented history. This talk will highlight significant aspects of the first four major waves of migration, through 1910. The areas from which they came and motivations that typified each wave will be detailed. Available immigration and emigration records help tell the immigrant’s story. Laws changed over time and impacted various aspects of the immigration experience.

    Excellent webinar…..very informative and organized. I took copious notes to be added to the syllabus. While focused on German immigrants, some (much?) of the information could be applied to immigrants from other countries. Well done, Teresa!
