Last week’s survey asked when your first immigrant ancestor arrived in North America. 5,475 people responded to this survey. The results are:

  • <1%, 2000 to the present
  • 1%, 1900 to 1999
  • 9%, 1800 to 1899
  • 6%, 1700 to 1799
  • 78%, 1600 to 1699
  • 3%, 1500 to 1599
  • 1%, Prior to 1500
  • 2%, I am not sure when my earliest immigrant ancestor arrived in North America.

This week’s survey asks if you were named after a relative. Take the survey now!
