The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Alberty surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Michael Albert who arrived in Lancaster, Pa. in 1719; Henry Albert settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1798; Adam Albert settled in Philadelphia in 1738.
