The Curious Case of Albert Miller

USCIS History and Genealogy “Your Questions” Webinar

Friday FEBRUARY 5, 2016, 1:00 pm Eastern

The upcoming USCIS History and Genealogy “Your Questions” presentation will discuss the search for answers in the case of an immigrant who arrived at Philadelphia in 1908. Questions raised by Albert Miller’s naturalization documents lead to additional information in a variety of places and some very surprising results. Join us to learn exactly how Albert arrived in the United States, and how small clues can lead to big discoveries.
