Where is a resource to find answers to questions about modern time
immigration from the U.S. to Europe and visa verca.
Mainly I am looking for answers to:

"What city has the most former Americans in Russia"?
"What suburbian area has the most Russians in America"?
"Where are the most English speaking people in Germany"?

Looking for resource to find immigration statistics for world-wide
"perminant moves".  <--   <--

If a former American moved to Russia, where would he most likely move
to?  Strovapol?  St. Petersburg?  Perhaps smaller city?

If a former Russian moved to the U.S.  What suburb would he most
likely move to? Not counting larger cities like L.A., but perhaps a
city in California near L.A.?  Or would it be somewhere in the

And also, if an American decided to live in Germany, where in Germany
would that most likely be?  If I wanted to move to Germany, and be
with others that had "originally" came from the states.  Where would I

Now remember... I am looking for a "Place of Resource" to find that
info.  In case I would wish to look up other immigration
possibilities, I would like to know the original source.  I looked at with out any luck.  But there has to be a study of
that with possible charts somewhere perhaps used for marketing.

To help personalize search:
My son is planning on going into the Air-Force.  My Grandparents
originally came from Germany, and perhaps that is why my son would
like to move there when his commission is done.  I have a cousin who
has already done this, but I lost her address a number of years ago.
(Mind you, that my son has never met my cousin).
He is absolutely in love with the romance of the idea of moving to
Germany.  He has asked me to move there after he settle down and I
retire.  I would like to live in an area where I would feel more
comfortable, and more people are similar to myself.  (We really don't
have close family here, so large moves are not out of the question.)
Part 2:
My wife is from Stravopol Russia.  I have been there, and Moscow
twice.  I love it there.  My wife is 14 years my younger, and was a
teacher there.  I wouldn't mind moving there at my retirement, but
once again, I would like to live in a community that is made up of
Part 3:
My wife at times misses being with people from her culture.  There are
some Russians in Wisconsin, but not a large number.  Where could we
think about moving to, that would have people that came here from
Russia.  I am not a city person, even though I liked being in the
Russian area of L.A. for vacation this last spring.
Hence the search for the info.  I would like to find the source of
information so that I can do comparisons about the good and bad about
each location.
(I hope this helps)
There is no answer at this time.

"Where are the most English speaking people in Germany"?

This query does not fit the pattern of your question.  All German
children must learn English in school - some better, some worse -  but
very many German natives speak English very well.  If you are asking
about immigrant English speakers, there are, of course, British,
Irish, Americans, even Indians and South Africans, plus other
nationalities, and then there are the non-immigrants, expatriates
working in Germany.
The same applies for Americans in Russia, probably few "former
Americans" but many expatriates working there, most of them in Moscow.
 There was a recent question on the subject  - a surprisingly large

Thanks for your clarification.  I still have to ask for another
clarification.  You speak of "a former American" and "a former
Russian", each settling in the other country.  The "former" implies
that they have or intend to give up their original citizenship.  Is
this precisely what you mean?  Immigrants usually do eventually become
citizens of the host country, but many  - like me, an American in
Germany -  do not.  I doubt that US citizens who settle in Russia
would, whereas Russians who managed to settle in USA would be more
likely to consider it a decision to remain and become a US citizen.
This does not refer to persons  - either way -  who are in the country
for business reasons and expect to return.
Germany:  I live here for more than 30 years.  For Americans, it is
not an immigration country as it is for some other nationalities who
seek a place in a more prosperous country but want contact to people
who speak their language and have their customs.  The relatively few
US citizens that settle here permanently  probably came originally
through their work  - also military -  and remained for personal
reasons, marriage to a German, retirement after years here.  There are
areas with more Americans:  Frankfurt, towns with former US military
posts, but there is no place where US immigrants settle to be together
with "their own" because there is not that kind of US immigration to
If, however, that is your personal interest, maybe some specific
information can be found.
You may find my comment to be less than helpful.  Perhaps I have
misunderstood you, or my view of immigration does not coincide with
Just trying to help, Myoarin
