I left all of those behind when I moved my wife and kids to Texas from California seven years ago.

My grandfathers before me did the same thing, when they moved their own wives and children from the Deep South to California, during WWII. Generations before that, some of my ancestors packed up and left Scotland and the British Isles to seek a better life in the American colonies.

Trends are again pushing families to migrate in patterns that reflect political, cultural, and economic realities.
