Special Genealogy Program: Introduction to INS Immigration and Naturalization Records
The National Archives at New York City is pleased to offer a special genealogy program on Monday, May 19th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the 3rd floor Learning Center.
USCIS Historian Zack Wilske will use case studies to introduce researchers to historical INS immigration and naturalization records available through the USCIS Genealogy Program and from the National Archives. Topics will include naturalization files, alien registration records, visa files, and other records documenting 20th century immigrant lives. Researchers will see sample files, hear tips on connecting the records to each other, and learn how to advance their immigration research beyond passenger lists.
Space is limited, so registration is recommended at firstname.lastname@example.org.
