Question by ChrisNY: How can I use an Immigration Visa Number in my Genealogy research?
I started researching my Genealogy a few years ago but got off track and never resumed it until recently. In some of the material I had from before I found copies of ship manifests and some of my ancestors are on them. I noticed they each have a unique “Immigration Vista Numbers”. How might I use this in my research?

If the country they came from keeps such records, you could write to the country and buy copies of the visa applications? They might have home town, birth date – maybe even parents.
