Migration to New Worlds

Migration to New Worlds

Migration to New Worlds is a collection of digitized primary sources documenting migration from Great Britain, Ireland, mainland Europe, and Asia to North America and Australasia. Migration to the United States, Australia, and New Zealand is especially well represented. Time period covered is the 19th through the 21st century. Material types are varied, and they include correspondence, diaries, scrapbooks, travel logs, maps, sketches, photographs, shipping papers, government papers, and immigration documents. Rutgers has access to two modules of content on this platform:

  • Module I: The Century of Immigration
  • Module II: The Modern Era

Rutgers does not have access to any other modules that may be released on this platform.
