Emigrating Ancestors

My dictionary defines " to migrate" as to change one's place of abode on a seasonal basis such as migrating birds; " to emigrate" means permanently leaving the country or region from a certain point of departure; " to immigrate" is defined as relocating to a country or region in which one is not native in order to settle there; and " to transmigrate" also means migrating or passing from one place or condition to another.

For our purpose, we are titling this article as "Emigrating Ancestors." They have uprooted themselves from one country and have moved lock, stock, and barrel to another, in this case, to the Americas to seek a better life. As we find more ancestors whom have emigrated from there to here, we'll continue to add them to this list. All dates are approximate.
