"Immigrant Stories"

 

Where did they come from? What port did they enter? Where did they settle?

 

These are the questions we wish answered.


We also want to know their stories and every immigrant has a story. The fate of the girl whose betrothed stood her up at Ellis Island, the Russian who walked the Siberian Railroad tracks to Japan to board a ship for San Francisco, the starving child who scavenged in the trash from first class.


These are a few of the stories we will hear from Suzanne.
