What Happened to the Real von Trapp Family? - The family left Austria for Italy (not Switzerland) in June 1938. That fall, they arrived in New York under six month visitors’ visas and began a concert tour in Pennsylvania. In 1944, several of the von Trapps applied for U.S. citizenship at the U.S. District Court in Burlington, Vermont.
