Updated Emigration Statistics – US

Available information

During the last days I have made an update on the statistics in my emigrant database. The total number of persons who emigrated to North America is 1.423 whereof 2 settled in Canada and 571 in the U.S. For 851 persons I only now that they emigrated to North America, with a high probability, that most of them emigrated to the U.S.

The subsequent chart illustrates the percentages about the level of detail I currently have in respect where they finally settled or died.
