Seattle Genealogical Society Save Access to Immigration Records!

Genealogists and family historians, your help is needed to save access to historical immigration records! 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has proposed a substantial fee hike to access millions of historical immigration records held exclusively by its genealogy program. This could effect you so it is really important that you post your comments and write to your Senators and Representative. 

The comment deadline is now March 13th so please submit your comments by then. Please share this deadline with your networks, too. Encourage them to comment and contact their Senators and Representative. If genealogists don’t comment, USCIS will think we don’t care how long it takes to get records or how much it costs. 

Visit the site below to learn more and make your voice heard in 3 easy steps! Thank you.
