This article presents the strategies for the which some immigrants got a fast social insert in the Brazilian society. We analyzed several historical sources that count the German immigrant's related public trajectory Germano F.E. Melchert. Are possible to identify, in the end of the century XIX, that some of the transformations happened in the city of Campinas took to the opening of the political space for immigrants that were already integrated into the society and that in some way maintained narrow relationships with the politicians of the city.
