Historical U.S. Census data are a treasure trove for understanding immigration patterns of settlement. The 1900 – 1930 censuses identify the place of birth for each recorded person, including the place of birth of the person’s mother and father.

Learn more about their intentions to make the data and Wisconsin’s immigration narrative available via modern and interactive story maps.
