How to Find the Records[edit | edit source]

Online Databases and Resources[edit | edit source]

This heading will include a bulleted list of collections/databases/websites.

Offices to Contact[edit | edit source]

This heading will contain any relevant offices/entities that may hold relevant records, if the records aren't available online. If there are no offices that fit this description, this subheading can be excluded.

Finding Town of Origin[edit | edit source]

The only content under this heading will be a link off to a specific Research Strategy article covering this topic. (this is to prevent this section from becoming too overwhelming and taking over the page.) - HOLD until we have a landing page for all of the Finding Town of Origin pages :)

Background[edit | edit source]

This heading will include information and subheadings (as needed) detailing the history, trends, peoples, or other relevant information about the nature of immigration in this country. Subheadings may be included as necessary for specific cultural groups or immigration/emigration patterns.

Immigration Records[edit | edit source]

This heading does not need to contain repeat listings of collections above... this heading will largely include information about the records such as passport records, passenger lists, etc. including what information can typically be found in the different records. Subheadings may be created for specific record types as needed.

Emigration Records[edit | edit source]

This heading does not need to contain repeat listings of collections above... this heading will largely include information about any records specific to emigration (as opposed to immigration), including what information can typically be found in the different records. Subheadings may be created for specific record types as needed.

In-country Migration[edit | edit source]

This section will detail any relevant migration patterns or influences that pertained to this location, such as common migration routes in the location, or groups of people from one location who congregated in another location, etc. (for state pages of the United States, this section will only include migration patterns that were relevant to that particular state)

For Further Reading[edit | edit source]

This heading will contain any other publications/websites, etc. that may be relevant to researching/understanding immigration and emigration for this country.
