Coming To America

Immigration involves establishing new ties while holding on to old ones. Here we share our family immigration experiences about coming to the United States. These are our stories, our voices, our dreams, on our journey to becoming Americans.

The oral histories on this site are primary sources. We hope to inspire you to add your own immigration stories to our Message Board. There are ideas on this site that will help you to create your own web site on immigration.

We come from different places, speak different languages, are different colors, eat different foods, wear different clothes, have different religions, follow different customs, yet we are all Americans.
