The German Element of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia


This valley includes the counties of Augusta, Rockingham, Shenandoah, Page, Warren, Frederick, and Clarke of Virginia, and the counties of Berkeley, and Jefferson of West Virginia. The majority of Germans immigrants came to the valley from Maryland and Pennsylvania prior to 1800, with a few from New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and eastern Virginia. A geographical outline of the valley is followed by a brief account of early exploration, and “The Germans of the Shenandoah Valley: Whence They Came; Why; and When”.
