Immigration records offer a wealth of valuable information for immigrants, genealogists, journalists, academic researchers and others. However, several agencies maintain immigration records, so finding them can challenge even the savviest FOIA requester.
Join agency representatives and requesters for an OGIS Forum on immigration records on Wednesday, May 23, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. This event, which will take place at the National Archives building at 7th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, will focus on these questions:
- Where should I go to find different kinds of immigration records?
- Which agency maintains which records?
- How do agencies locate immigration records?
- Is there a way to streamline access to immigration records?
To RSVP for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also join the OGIS Forum by phone; please RSVP and we will send the teleconference information.
