The 1940 registration
The Legal Genealogist is up to her eyeballs in the frenzy of the last day of the combined FGS2015-RootsTech conference in Salt Lake City. But it’s Saturday… a day for my family here on the blog… and I can’t leave this space vacant.
So here’s a teaser.
Did you know we had aliens among us?
And — better yet — we not only had aliens among us, they left records???
Take a gander at these two pages of an AR-2 form from the Alien Registration of 1940. And we’ll talk about these forms — and about the woman recorded in these forms, Martha Benschura — down the road. (And if you’re here in Salt Lake City, come join me at 4 p.m. when I’ll be speaking about Martha Benschura: Enemy Alien.)
