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? Judy G. Russell, a genealogist and lawyer, will be the presenter.  This is a Zoom presentation that will be shown in the library.
