National Archives Reveals Story Of Immigration From 1880-1945

From NPR: “Deep inside the National Archives in Washington, D.C., old case files tell the stories of hundreds of thousands of hopeful immigrants to the U.S. between 1880 and the end of World War II. These stories are in the form of original documents and photographs that were often attached to immigrant case files. Many of them are part of a new exhibit at the Archives, called ‘Attachments’.” There are photos of the immigrants at Ellis Island, as well as various documents of the “Declaration of Non-immigrant Alien about to Depart for the United States.” Researcher Erika Lee found her grandmother’s wedding photograph. You too might be able to find a family photo in there somewhere.
