was known as the European Migration, and was sometimes also referred to as The Great Migration.

Closely following him was the Arteaga family, who included Martin de Arteaga, Pascual de Arteaga, and Pedro de Arteaga, who all landed in the United States of America in the year of 1812. In 1813, one Cristobal de Arteaga arrived within the country. It is possible that before the year of 1810, someone who bore the surname of Arteaga attempted to migrate to the United States and passed away en route. The living conditions on the transportation ships were poor, often causing the passengers to arrive with disease and starvation, if they arrived at all.
