Description

The American Family Albums tell the 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 personal diaries, letters, memoirs, and newspapers -- to provide a pictorial and written record of the group's life in America, and their contributions to the brilliant diversity of these United States.show more
