Program Description

Event Details

About 47 million people immigrated to the United States between 1607 to 1990, with about 70% entering through the Port of New York. Immigrants also entered through other ports such as Boston, New Orleans, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Providence, or through Canada and Mexico. To explore how to locate when and where your ancestor entered the United States, Christine will review the websites and resources to find clues to these ports.
