Value of Migration Research

Mountains, forests, rivers, and the gaps between them tended to channel migration into predictable settlement patterns in the United States. Historical events like gold or land rushes, and Indian treaties also affected settlement. Migration research may help you discover:

  • a place of origin, previous hometown, or place where an ancestor settled
  • biographical details such as what they experienced, or with whom they traveled on their journey
  • clues for finding other records
