Yesterday we released the Subject Index to Correspondence and Case Files of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, 1903-1952 project. These records are index cards which detail the movement of persons to and from the U.S.A. – many of the records I have keyed are telling about Germans going back to Germany (“an enemy country”) after the war was over, and of Canadians going back across the border. The majority of the cards have 3-4 records so you will go to the next line down for each record.
If you have questions about this project, the keying tool, or other projects, please join me on Twitter at 3 pm today or 10 am tomorrow morning. (All times are MT – our time here in Utah.)
