I am a fairly new researcher and I do not know exactly where to begin.
I know that I have family that came >from Romania/Austria/Germany.
How do I find out immigration records around the time of WWI? I do
not know where my family entered the US. I do know that my
great-grandfather Louis Eckhaus was possibly jailed in the US (NY?)
during WWI after entering the country because he came >from the
Romanian section of Germany. What records would I look for to find
information on him?
MODERATOR NOTE: The best place to begin is by reading the FAQs under the first
heading "Learn" on the JewishGen home page (www.jewishgen.org)
