Armenian Immigration to North America through the 1930s: A Compilation of Primary Sources (Armenian Weekly)
Armenian Weekly: Armenian Immigration to North America through the 1930s: A Compilation of Primary Sources. “Researching Armenian genealogy presents unique challenges, in large part due to the scarcity of records in the Armenian homeland and the scattering of families who survived the Armenian Genocide. Many Armenians immigrated to North America in the latter part of the 1800s and in the early 1900s. Fortunately, for those of Armenian descent living in the US and Canada, a tremendous amount of information can be found in primary source records of these countries to help them to learn about their Armenian families.” If you’re new to or interested in genealogy, please give this article a read. It’s a deep dive into how someone gathered genealogical information, organized it and presented it. It shows not only how he’s thinking about his data, but also what data he considers important enough to include in his calculations. Extensive and interesting even for me, a very Irish, not-at-all-Armenian potato.
