Immigration After the Civil War – Hybrid
January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Judy G. Russell
America’s doors were open to all before the Civil War, with few restrictions. Afterwards, the laws began tightening, with exclusions, quotas,
even required visas. How did the immigration laws affect your ancestors who immigrated after the Civil War? What hoops did they have to jump
through to enter America’s “golden door”—and what records might we find as a result?
This is a Zoom presentation that will be shown in the library or can be viewed from home.
