Ancestry Maps


Austrian The ePodunk map shows U.S. cities with the highest percentages of people of ancestry. Learn about cities with genealogy and find in-depth community information about the ancestry cities.


Early Austrian immigrants came to America in the early 18th century to escape religious persecution in Salzburg. In the 1800s, poverty and overpopulation in their homeland drove Austrian families to the U.S. And in the years preceding World War II, thousands fled the Nazis.

In the 2000 census, 730,336 people in the U.S. claimed Austrian ancestry.

ePodunk mapped the top communities by percentage of population. The map and the following list show communities in which 1,000 or more people listed an ancestry group, and in which at least 2 percent of those people said they were of Austrian ancestry.

The links at left lead to information on other races and ethnicities.
