The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Berwanngers to arrive in North America, and among them were: Phillip Berwanger who was recorded as having arrived in America in 1853; Peter Berwanger who arrived in New York state in 1857; Peter Joseph Berwanger arrived in North America in 1885.
