JGS Cleveland presents “The What and When of Immigration and Naturalization Records” with Marian Smith, Oct 6 at 7 PM ET #jgs-iajgs #education
Join the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland for our next Zoom program on Wednesday, October 6, 7-8:30 pm ET - “The What and When of Immigration and Naturalization Records” with Marian Smith.
Program: Marian Smith presents an overview of three historical eras of US immigration and naturalization records, illustrated with documents of Jewish immigrants. Using a timeline tool (included in the handout), she demonstrates how plotting an immigrant’s life events can identify what records may exist for that particular immigrant and where these records can be found.
Speaker: Marian Smith retired in 2018 after thirty years as an Historian for the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), later US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). She now occasionally speaks to groups on US immigration and nationality records and anxiously awaits returning to research at the National Archives.
Registration: Required and free - Send an email to rsvp@... by 12 Noon EDT on Sep 1st to receive a Zoom link. If you are NOT a JGS Cleveland member, please include your name, email, and complete mailing address.
