REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!! ~ ETHNICITY AND GENEALOGY ~ Massachusetts has been a landing point for immigrants since 1620, and though the predominant nationalities of immigrants have varied in different eras, the challenge of locating those newly arrived, impoverished and disenfranchised ancestors has remained equally challenging through the centuries.
