The Great Migration

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 Boehns to arrive in North America, and among them were: Betu Bohn, who, according to immigration lists, was the first Bohn member to arrive in North America, settling in Pennsylvania in 1728; Adam Bohn, aged 27.
