Examine the push and pull factors that brought Germans to this area at different points in time. Presented by genealogist Teresa McMillan.

Germans arrived in Chicago and its surrounding areas in different migration waves, moving on or making Chicago home, with widely varying motivations. Learn about specific settlement areas, including the German settlement in Gross Point, and how to access many rich resources, including archives and records, to research Germans who spent time in Chicagoland.
