They're Not Just Records. . .
This poster comes from the booklet, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Privacy Stewardship, published by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General, p. 20. It was created to encourage the protection of records for living people.
The USCIS genealogy website offers a link to a Genealogy Notebook and has a Family History Research page. I did not spend much time at the website because as far as I know, my ancestors came to the U.S. before federal records were kept. If you have ancestors who came to America more recently, you may find helpful information there.
