Immigration
Home

This is a list of all of my direct-line ancestors who immigrated to the United States. Ancestors who immigrated to countries other than the United States are not listed.

Sources are listed at the bottom of the page. Due to the high number of ancestors listed on this page, I was unable to find a source for every single person.

When I was unable to find an immigration record, I estimated a time frame of immigration based on birthdays, children's birthdays and locations, death dates, and any land, census or military record which established them in a certain area at a certain time.

For other ancestors which I could not locate a record, but had information about their immigration, I marked with a *. This information comes mostly from family traditions or stories. I cannot verify for the validity of dates, but they fit into the time frame I established for their immigration, so I decided to list them.
