United States immigrants originating from Lorsch or Kleinhausen

In the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, part of the European population emigrated to the United States. Between 1850 and 1930 alone there were 5 million Germans looking for their luck in the New World.
The motives were essentially hunger, poverty or poor future prospects (e.g. due to the division of the farm) or a thirst for adventure. In return, cheap land and high wages, low taxes and the prospect of a better quality of life attracted people to America.
According to a Rothenheber family tradition there was another reason for the emigration. They left Germany after the First World War due to German hyperinflation.
Often, the emigrants were actually better off in their new homeland, and it was frequently that relatives or friends were encouraged to follow them.
During this time, many citizens from Lorsch and Kleinhausen also left their homeland for America, mostly whole families.
Reasons like those in other parts of Germany certainly contributed to this decision in Lorsch. As a result, there are many Americans today who have their roots in Lorsch, among other German towns.
Recently, this lineage has been confirmed by new insights from DNA genealogy.

Here is a list of all America emigrants from Lorsch, the neighbouring town of Kleinhausen (today Einhausen) and Lorsch-Seehof. The Seehof was once an independent municipality with over 200 inhabitants. Due to poor agricultural conditions, most of the Seehof residents emigrated to the United States in 1853/54.
This list is not yet complete and will be continuously expanded while working on the Local Heritage Book Lorsch.
