Migration of the Rubinig family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Rubinig or a variant listed above: Carl Rubin, who came to New York, NY in 1851; Catherine Regina Rubin, who came to Halifax, N.S. in 1752; Charles A. Rubin, who arrived in St. Clair Co., IL in 1864.
