Where did your Ancestors Hail from?

Let us face it. Most of the immigrants to America came from Germany, Scotland, and Ireland. If we trace the movements of these groups there are visible similarities in their settlements. Upon arriving, they typically grouped together in temporary communities of ethnic origins. A vast population of Germans landed in Philadelphia and from there took the wagon trails southwest into North Carolina and Virginia. The influx of the Scotch-Irish beginning about 1732 landed in Wilmington, North Carolina, and followed the trail into the Carolinas, North Carolina, and Virginia.
