This Year’s Topic: 

Dielman Kolb and the Immigration Ordeal 

When the Kolbs left their Palatinate homeland for Pennsylvania in the early 1700s, little did they know of the harrowing journey ahead.  Confinement, poor living conditions, bad food and sickness on a months long sea voyage was just a start.  Then they arrived in Philadelphia to face a new set of trials.

Join us for an illustrated look into what drove the Kolbs and others to leave the Old World to undertake a hazardous journey to a new and untamed land.
