The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive.

In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were: Andreas Bach, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1768; Gabriel Bach came to Georgia in 1734; Johan Bach settled in Philadelphia in 1744; Thos Bach came to Virginia in 1638..

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: In cruce spes mea
Motto Translation: In the cross is my hope.
