Historical immigration to Great Britain concerns the inward movement of people, cultural and ethnic groups into the island of Great Britain before Irish independence in 1922

Historical immigration to Great Britain concerns the inward movement of people, cultural and ethnic groups into the island of Great Britain before Irish independence in 1922.

Immigration after Irish independence is dealt with by the article Immigration to the United Kingdom since Irish independence.

The history of immigration to the United States details the movement of people to the United States starting with the first European settlements from around 1600. Beginning around this time, British and other Europeans settled primarily on the east coast. In 1619, Africans began being imported as slaves. The United States experienced successive waves of immigration, particularly from Europe.

Historians have traditionally divided American Jewish immigration into three periods .

Historians have traditionally divided American Jewish immigration into three periods: Sephardic, German, and Eastern European. While the case can be made that during each period, immigrants were not solely of any one origin (Some Germans came during the Sephardic period and some Eastern Europeans arrived during the German era, for example), the fact remains that the dominant immigrant group at the time influenced the character of the American Jewish community. Still, the contemporary American Jewish community remains very much a product of these founding groups.

During the Great Migration, an estimated two hundred ships reportedly carrying approximately 20,000 people arrived in Massachusetts. Although migration to New England dropped dramatically after the Great Migration, the descendants of the people who entered Massachusetts in those years settled much of the northeastern region of the United States and later spread westward throughout the country.

In Divided Europeans: Understanding Ethnicities in Conflict (pp. 243–283), eds. Allen, T. and Eade, .The Hague: Kluwer Law International. Contesting Notions of American Identity and the Effects of Latin American Immigration.

This book explores reactions to issues viewed as of major importance by the editors of "The American Hebrew" of New York in the years 1879-1884, 1894-1898 and 1903-1908. Since its inception in 1879 and until World War 1, the "Hebrew" was a leading Anglo-Jewish weekly, which helped to mold the structure and attitudes of the community's English-speaking sectors. Responsible for it was the unique character of the nine-member founding editorial board, mostly of national prominence in religious and civic life. They remained anonymous until 1929. Desire for total integration into American society as well as fear of assimilation and pride in Jewish particularism produced a community in conflict.
