Migration of the Batzzentorf family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Batzzentorf 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.
