Where did your father come from? On Wednesday at 7 pm, join us at the National Archives for “Ellis Island and the Immigrant Experience”.
Using records and photographs, our historians explore the dreams, realities, and experiences of the people who passed through Ellis Island.
Panelists include Megan Smolenyak, genealogy expert and author of Hey America, Your Roots are Showing; Marian Smith, historian at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; John Phillip Colletta, genealogy expert and lecturer; and Joel Wurl, senior program officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities.
A book signing will follow the program.
