Migration of the Nichelman family to the New World and Oceana


After the First World War, Austria became a republic. The Treaty of Versailles broke up the empire in 1919 and many of the Sudeten Germans were incorporated into the new nation of Czechoslovakia. In the 20th century, many Austrians migrated to other parts of Germany or Europe, as well as to North America. In the United States, the majority of settlers landed in Philadelphia, and moved on to Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, New York, and Maryland. Many German settlers also migrated to Canada, particularly Ontario and the Prairies. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Nichelman were Johanna Nicholls, who arrived in Maryland in 1737; Johannes Nicol, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1739; Johan Nickel, who came to Philadelphia in 1739.
