Yeah Jay...!!<quoted text>
You are so right. Whoever spammed my post knows nothing of researching genealogy. It's all there, in the National Archives, but when I was doing it, we had access to original books they would bring from the back room. Later it all went on microfilm and they told me at the courthouse they were destroying the original tomes. They would not let anyone have them either.
A story handed down to me was when one of my female ancestors left Palermo. Two weeks on a ship with two children. The embarrassing physical, crying, tired, hungry children, the rush of getting everyone's name, etc. Imagine in a bunker on a ship with a small infant! For two or more weeks!! I think of diapers and trying to feed them in the company of strangers.
This is how many of our names have been changed, due to the recorder not understanding the spellings.
In later years, my maternal side grandfather helped sponsor many German's who wanted to come to America. And so it went until they closed the doors on immigration at Ellis Island.
Today's non Americans who jumped the border are not immigrants. They are illegal aliens from a foreign country with no permission to enter and live here. Yet we kissass because we have a president and democratic party who wants to pander for votes. It's called padding the books and they will cheat to get it. It sucks to be a democrat!!! Now go ahead and spam my post - what I said is true!
bite me spammers!!!
Today people don't know difference between immigrants and illegal aliens. What is wrong, does anyone has any common sense, do they care for their country? Attack their own, but protect those that break the law. Reward the criminals ...??
Don't bother Jay, explaining anything, it's very difficult for some to know and understand an immigration.
But, on the other hand it is very easy, just enforce the law that we already have on books. Too many entered illegally and have their roots here already. Our corrupt politicians don't really care.
Giving amnesty it's just an invitation for more illegals ...!! Securing borders and enforcing the law will work, but our government doesn't want too...!!
