I selected to do the yr of migration to a brand new place from the earlier place.  

a)  Right here is my SEAVER surname (my paternal line) locations migration map:

Robert Seaver got here to Roxbury, Massachusetts from England in 1634.  My ancestral SEAVER households  moved throughout northeastern Massachusetts (Sudbury in 1687, Shrewsbury in 1760, Westminster in 1773, Leominster in 1870) till my father bought in his automotive in December 1940 in Leominster and drove to San Diego, California.  

b)  Right here is my CARRINGER surname (my maternal line)  locations migration map:

For the CARRINGER line, I do not know the place or when the immigrant got here from Germany, however Martin Carringer (1758-1835) obtained land in Mercer County, Pennsylvania in 1795.  His son, Henry Carringer (1800-1879) moved his household to Louise County, Iowa in 1858.  His son, David Jackson Carringer (1828-1902) moved his household to Boulder, Colorado in 1873.  His son, Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946) moved to San Diego on his honeymoon in 1887, and the household by no means left.

Thanks, J. Paul, for the thought and inspiration.
