Historical Immigration Law and a New Genealogy program at USCIS
Genie Angels has posted information about a new genealogy program at USCIS, United States citizenship and Immigration Services. Genealogy research has usually been conducted through a FOIA request. With the establishment of the Genealogy program there likely will be changes to the USCIS genealogy site in the future [new URL]in addition to changes in what records may be accessed through a FOIA request and what is available through the Genealogy Program. The Federal Register indicated, if I’ve read it correctly, that the Genealogy program will go into effect on August 13, 2008.
