[ Search ]

The United States has always been a land of great opportunity, founded and shaped by immigrants seeking freedom. These immigrants had imagination and ambition. Coming from many nations and traditions, they strengthened and enriched the state's culture and helped shape Missouri life.

Immigrants to Missouri primarily emigrated from European countries, including England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Belgium, Austria, Romania, Hungary, Switzerland, Prussia, Germany, and various German principalities including Hanover, Bavaria, and Saxony. They filed their naturalization papers to become citizens in county courts across the state.
