TheShipsList: Passengers, Ships, Shipwrecks Olive Tree Genealogy Immigration: Stories of Yesterday and Today and Ellis Island World War II and the Postwar Period The United States entered World War II in 1942. During the war, immigration decreased. There was fighting in Europe, transportation was interrupted, and the American consulates weren't open. Fewer than 10 percent of the immigration quotas from Europe were used from 1942 to 1945.In many ways, the country was still fearful of the influence of foreign-born people. The United States was fighting Germany, Italy, and Japan (also known as the Axis Powers), and the U.S. government decided it would detain certain resident aliens of those countries. Also because of the war, the Chinese Exclusion Act was repealed in 1943. I believe that the admission of these persons will add to the strength and energy of the Nation." Learn More

Effectuer des recherches généalogiques en Allemagne ? Partie 1 – les bases. – Généalogie 101 Bonne question. Surtout quand on est Lorrain, que la moitié de notre arbre vient de l’autre côté du Rhin et qu’on ne parle pas un mot d’Allemand. Et comme pour toute chose que je ne sais pas, Google est mon meilleur ami. Et comme tout meilleur ami il m’a apporté quelques réponses que je voudrais partager ici avec vous. Quelques petites particularités avant de commencer: L’état civil moderne Allemand s’est mis en place en 1876. avec quelques exceptions dans certains Länder: en 1792 en Rhénanie, 1803 en Hesse-Nassau, 1808 en Westphalie, 1809 dans le Hanovre, 1874 en Prusse.Les archives religieuses Allemandes sont souvent classées par type d’Église. Une organisation dictée par l’Histoire Le système d‘archives en Allemagne est extrêmement complexe, car profondément marqué par le fédéralisme de l‘État et par son histoire administrative. Nous ne nous contenterons que d’en citer (ce n’est pas du plagiat donc…) quelques points ici: Source: F. La recherche d’aide sur des forums Les petites annonces

Family Genealogy | Genealogy on the Internet Getting Started on Your Family Tree Family mementoes Introduction The first task that faces every family historian when they begin research into an individual is to collect basic biographical details about the person under investigation. The events that are shared by everyone - birth and death - are the best place to start. '... birth and death - are the best place to start.' We have these records because, due to massive population expansion in the 19th century, civil registration for births, marriages and deaths was introduced in England and Wales in 1837, 1855 in Scotland and 1864 in Ireland. Before this date, other records exist that contain information about these events. First things The National Archives office, Kew, London When starting to create your own family tree, the first thing is to talk to as many family members as possible.
