USCIS History, Library, and Genealogy

USCIS History

This portion of the website is under construction.  It will contain information about the Immigration and Naturalization (I&N) Historical Reference Library collection and services, documents concerning the history of the Service, immigration law, procedure, AND immigration stations, as well as instructions for historical and genealogical research using records of the former INS.

We welcome everyone with an interest in the history of immigrants, immigration law and nationality law, or the INS and its predecessor agencies to contact us with comments, questions, or suggestions on expanding this site.
