The Great Migration



Between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries, German settlers arrived in North America by the thousands. Persecution based on religion and poverty were great motivators in this large-scale migration. So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Effler or a variant listed above: Albertine and Magdalene Effner, both of whom arrived in New York City in 1850; and other settlers who traveled to and established themselves along the eastern coast of the United States and Canada during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries..
