According to the 2000 Census, over 51 million Americans claim German heritage. A great way for visitors to trace their roots is offered at the German Emigration Center in Bremerhaven, one of the most sophisticated interactive museums of its kind. The exhibition enables visitors to relive some of the journeys taken by more than seven million emigrants, who sailed from Germany to the U.S. and Canada from the port of Bremerhaven between 1830 and 1974. This award-winning museum is a great genealogical resource and a must-see for any German-American. Visit their website to find out more: http://dah-bremerhaven.de/ENG/en.museum.php
