Library Lunch Hour: 20th Century Puerto Rican Migration

Library Lunch Hour: 20th Century Puerto Rican Migration


Event Organizer: Center for Puerto Rican Studies


You asked, we answered! We looked at our submissions for Library Lunch Hour requests and chose our top four most popular requests (which you voted on)! The polls are closed and the votes tallied and you voted for Puerto Migration Stateside! We're focusing on our collection of the OGPRUS Identification Program. The Identification and Documentation records group consists of official records documenting the administration of the ID program among whose functions was the distribution of English language identification cards for Puerto Rican migrants to prove their United States citizenship. The documents contain a wealth of information on individual migrants and constitute a rich source for genealogical research as well for other areas of migration studies, such as citizenship and settlement patterns.
