Jewish Genealogical Society NY Meeting
Sunday May 23, 2020 at 2 p.m. EDT
Researching US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) RecordsSpeaker: Marian Smith
Marian Smith will present an overview of three historical eras (1820-Present) of US immigration and naturalization records, illustrated with documents of Jewish immigrants. Using a timeline tool (included in the handout), she will demonstrate how plotting an immigrant’s life events can pinpoint which records may exist for that particular immigrant and where these records can be found. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
Marian Smith retired in 2018 after thirty years as a historian for the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), later US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). She now speaks to groups on US immigration and nationality records and leads the I&N Records fortnightly study group.
