This project aims to make available on-line digitized letters from the IHRC collections that were written between 1850 and 1970 both by immigrants (the so-called “America letters”) and to immigrants (“Europe Letters”) in languages other than English. The website encourages scholars, teachers, students and the public to interpret letters that express emotion and intimacy among separated loved ones in new ways.
