Why i chose Immigration:
For this project I decided to choose immigration because I am really interested in it. Being that parts of my own family emigrated to the U.S. I've always wanted to learn more about it, Sitting in class you are always talking about how this group of people moved here and there and you never truly get to understand their experiences. Hopefully with this website I will be able to show those experiences, even going all the way back to 1865.
What I hope to learn:
By the end of this project I hope to learn about all types of people that came to U.S. and what motivated them to do so. There's a lot of things that i don't know about this topic and I'm really excited to discover new things about all different types of people. Certain periods there was only a few types of people immigrating to the U.S. and sometimes there was barely anybody moving over here, so I am excited to look into different charts and information to find out why those certain types of things occurred over time.
