Old Homes of New Americans

Table of Contents

As part of our efforts to present different perspectives on the life of your ancestors and the time they lived in we present Old Homes of New Americans, published in 1913.

The book attempts to explain to America exactly who are all these people called Austro-Hungarians and where are they coming from?

The book is written in a third party perspective, not from the point of view of a person explaining who he is. In it you will find misinformation and stereotypes that were typical of the time it was written with a little religious bias added in places.

We do not endorse all statements made in the book but offer it as a source of better understanding of the time in which it was written.
