Migration of the Buden family to the New World and Oceana
Since medieval times, the state of Prussia
has played an important part in the history of Germany
. The state's military powers were historically very strong, and endured until after the Second World War, when the territory was broken up and divided between the Soviet Union
, Poland, East Germany
and West Germany. A spurt of migration followed, with some Prussians going elsewhere in Europe and many others crossing the ocean to North America. Most entered the United States through Philadelphia. Some remained there, while more moved on to the states of Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Others traveled to Canada and settled Ontario and the prairie provinces.
