Migration of the Batzenndorp family to the New World and Oceana


Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Batzenndorp or a variant listed above: settlers who traveled to and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries.
