Arrival at Ellis Island on the White Star Line

We are preparing our naturalization records for transfer to the Indiana State Archives.  They will be made part of the digital archives and be placed in an environment where they can be better preserved.  As a result, we are also rediscovering some naturalization records and material that has been long since tucked away. This postcard dated 1922 was discovered today.  Though we are not sure which naturalization record it belongs to, it appears to have come from one of our many residents of German heritage.
