a question about the ages of young men on entering the US from Germany #general


Susan Lindheim
 

I have several family members who came to the US from Germany in the 1860s-70s.  All of them are aged 17 on their immigration papers and afterwards although based on other information they had to be older.  Was there something about being a minor upon entering the US?  Thank you
