A project intended to list ancestors that were the first to immigrate to the country now known as the United States of America. Many managers place a profile picture similar to the one on the right on their ancestor that emigrated from another country and arrived in the U.S.A to build a new life. This project creates a data base of those pioneers.

Your ancestor profiles added to this project will be printed using History Link.
