About 47 million people immigrated to the US between 1607 and 1990 and about 70% entered through the Port of New York. However, you need to consider a broader search in all ports, such as Boston, New Orleans, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Providence. Also, an entry through Canada and Mexico, should be researched. We will review the websites and resources to locate clues to these entry ports such as State Censuses, Voter Registrations, WWI Draft registrations, and Passport Applications.

About Christine Cohen

I am a long time member of the Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS), and have served in many capacities, including President. In addition to WAGS, I’m also a member of the El Redondo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Society of Daughters of Holland Dames and the Association of Professional Genealogists.

My interest in genealogy began in 1977 with the airing of the TV mini-series “Roots” and was piqued when I found a typed pedigree chart of my Dutch heritage from the New Netherlands in the 1660’s. I am a native Californian, a graduate of UCLA in Political Science and have worked for Vitol Aviation Company since 1993.
