The selections at the left will give us a window into the countries during the time period in which my families emigrated and immigrated. We will take a look at the historical, political, cultural, and daily happenings that were taking place. We will also ponder the reasons for their leaving.
Hope you enjoy the tour. Let me know if you have any comments, corrections, or additions as the pages are built.
