We welcome opportunities for the Migrant Connections project to collaborate with genealogical societies, heritage associations, cultural groups and other organizations interested in German-American history and culture. If you would like to organize an event that includes an opportunity for individuals to digitize their relevant historical letters, or to discuss other potential partnerships, please reach out to us at

All of the material on our website is provided for use in classroom teaching with no further permission necessary. The majority of our letters are provided thanks to the generous collaboration of libraries and archives, and we have no authority to grant permission for republication. For contact information for permission to use specific items, please review the “rights” information for collections containing items which interest you.
