"The German Settlements of Nineteenth-Century Long Island"
Paul van Wie
Community Church of East Williston

Today's Elmont, Franklin Square, New Hyde Park, Hicksville, Wantagh, and Massapequa Park are among the Long Island villages founded or settled by German immigrants. Some were even predominantly German-speaking by 1900. A diverse group, the German immigrants were merchants, professionals, farmers, and hotel owners. They became Americans, made Long Island their home, and their numerous descendants remain here to this day. Dr. van Wie is a Professor of History and Political Science at Molloy College and President of the Franklin Square Historical Society. Copies of his book on German settlements will be available to purchase.
Guests are welcome to attend; invite your friends. This program is free. Refreshments will be served.
