History on The Move

Our Deep German Roots – Tuesday Sept. 13th, 1 – 2:30 p.m.. 

Germans have been emigrating to America, the” land of hope and shining promise”, for more than 300 years.  Among all the states in theU.S. to which Germans emigrated, Wisconsin has always had a deeper German heritage than any other.

Once they had arrived in the “promised land” the most significant question for most newcomers became “where to?”  Like other immigrant groups, Germans followed their natural instinct of forming neighborhoods with their countrymen where they felt at home far away from  home.  To many, Wisconsin seemed like the perfect choice.  We’ll talk about immigration, customs and food choices.

This program is presented by the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Cedar Grove Public Library.
