The Great Migration



Much of German history has been shaped by the state of Prussia. It was an enduring military power until after the Second World War. At that time, the state was abolished altogether and its land divided between the Soviet Union, Poland, East Germany and West Germany. While some Prussians were content to remain in those countries, others moved away, many of them migrating to North America. They entered the United States mostly through Philadelphia, moving on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Others went to Canada, settling on the prairies and in the province of Ontario. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were: Diederick William Bodeker who arrived in Baltimore, Maryland in 1739; Arnold Bodeker settled in Philadelphia in 1773; Johann Bodecker who was recorded as having arrived in America in 1783.
