German roots in America can be traced back to the late 17th century, when this country consisted of a few scattered settlements in the midst of a vast wilderness. Over the next 200 years, Germans settled in the Mid-Atlantic states, the Midwest, in Texas and California, bringing to these areas a strong cultural identity and Protestant ethic for hard work, thoroughness, and thrift.
