try this link to the US Immigration Code:
http://www.uscis.gov/graphics/shared/aboutus/statistics/legishist/index.htm

It covers just about everything you want to know.

I hope that some of you out in "gen-land" are experts on documentation needed
for immigration. At the turn of the 20th century, what kind of documentation
would an immigrant actually have to provide in order to board a ship (and be
allowed to continue the voyage)? Name? Age? Occupation? Destination? Could
they falsify all of that?........
