Genealogy: Immigration  

FDR once said “Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists!” It might have been better if he had told us something that we didn’t already know! It would have been far more helpful if he had told us where we one day might find the records of these newcomers. In this course, we will discuss what is needed when searching for immigration papers and what to do when you can’t find the documents you are looking for. This course will provide you with information regarding foreign ports of departure, strategies for researching immigrants and their origins, and how to document your ancestors’ immigration.
