Bucks County Genealogical Society hosts
“Through the Golden Door: Immigration After the Civil War”
Presented by: The Legal Genealogist Judy Russell, JD, CG, CGL
America’s doors were open to all before the Civil War, with few restrictions. Afterwards, the laws began tightening, with exclusions, quotas, even required visas. How did the immigration laws affect your ancestors who immigrated after the Civil War? What hoops did they have to jump through to enter America’s “golden door”?
Open to the public • $5 Members / $10 Non-Members
