General Meeting

10:00am - 12:00pm

“German Immigration Patterns”

Since the 17th century, millions of German- speaking emigrants were leaving Europe for places far and wide, especially North America. Who were they? Why did they leave? The answer? It’s complicated. This talk explores waves of emigration in historical context, for reasons of war, religion, politics, weather, economics and other factors. Talk also takes a look at patterns of settlement of German immigrants once they arrived in North America.

 

Claire Gebben is the author of a memoir and an historical novel & has written articles, stories and essays for numerous publications. She has worked in desktop publishing, ghostwriting, and communications before quitting her day job to write full time. An adventurer at heart, she enjoys hiking, bicycling, traveling, and even on occasion, blacksmithing. She’s now working on an historical novel about Highland Scots immigrants to Ohio.
