For centuries, America has beckoned to immigrants the world over. With courage and determination they have traveled thousands of miles to rejoin loved ones, for economic opportunity, or simply to know freedom.

As a nation of immigrants, America has benefited from an infusion of talents and skills that are the foundations of many rich traditions. In the civic, economic, and artistic arenas, yesterday's newcomer is tomorrow's pioneer in a continuing process that defines us to this day.

The preservation and presentation of the immigrant experience in the United States is a central commitment of the New Americans Museumís mission. We are dedicated to insuring that individual stories are safeguarded in the Family Histories Essays and Oral and Visual Histories archives as enduring testaments to our immigrant roots as a culture and a nation.
