      I previously posted about an upcoming exhibit at the National Archives (US)
      on Immigration: "Attachments: Faces and Stories from America's Gates," which
      opens June 15, and runs through September 4. "Attachments" tells the stories
      of men, women and children who came to America between 1880 and the end of
      WWII--told through original documents and photographs that were attached to
      government forms.

      The National Archives is also holding a "sneak preview" on June 14. In
      addition to US Archivist Ferriero, one of the guests will be Michael
      Pupa--the only living person featured in the exhibit. Mr. Pupa and his
      immediate family is attending the opening and festivities as a result of a
      gift provided by the JGS of Greater Washington.

      The National Archives has recently announced special programs in June
      related to immigration and the exhibit. Anyone in the Washington DC area
      during the month of June may find these of interest:
