A-Files Boot Camp – Middlesex Chapter Meeting
December 11 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Presented by Alec Ferretti.
Learn about the single most insightful file series pertaining to 20th century immigrants to the United States. Held partially at the National Archives and partially by U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services, A-Files (short for Alien Files), exist for tens of millions of immigrants, spanning from those who arrived last week to people born in the mid 19th century. You may find handwritten letters, photographs, birth certificates from abroad, arrest records, and countless other documents! This talk will explain who will have an A-File, how to locate them, and what information it might contain.
