Overview

The American Family Albums tell the multicolored and often heroic stories of American immigrant groups, largely through their own words and pictures. Like any family album or scrapbook, the pages contain many period photographs and other memorabilia. These join with original documents-including selections from diaries, letters, memoirs, and newspapers-to bring the immigrant experience vividly to life. Each book is a pictorial and written record of the 'old country' left behind, the journey to America, the life that the newcomers made for themselves in their adopted country, and the group's contributions to the brilliant diversity of these United States.
