I've been reading articles recently about  "Auswanderung  aus der Pfalz".  There is a translation of the introduction  to Angela Hefner's book "Tscherwenka - 1785-1944 - Tscherwenkaer Familienwhich" which  is very informative about reasons for the exodus of many Germanic people from the various German "Duchies" .http://www.odessa3.org/collections/villages/link/tscher.txt

It seems many ancestors of Dietrich project members came to the US during the period of  the large Palatine migration. http://www.searchforancestors.com/passengerlists/history.html

My ancestors it seems, were part of the Great Schwabian Trek: http://www.dvhh.org/heritage/society/trek/index.htm  and were later immigrants to the USA in 1873.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germans_from_Russia  The period from 1820 to 1920 it seems was the period of the largest immigration of German people.

Regards,

Kelly
