: Last week we went to the National Archives and Records Administration at Waltham, MA to review the Chinese Case files for my husband's Moy relatives who immigrated from Mee Lung Village, Toi Shan to Worcester, Malden, and Boston, MA and Washington, DC.
When was the Worcester timeframe? I have a relative who thinks he is a descendent of the first Worcester laundryman.
: BTW, whatever index the INS had to the case files is missing for the approximately 15,000 files relating to Boston area Chinese immigrants via Vancouver, Montreal, and entry point of Richford, VT. In order to review the files, you need a case number. In many instances, w/in a file there was a handwritten sheet cross referencing other family members.
The National Archives has now indexed the Chinese Exclusion records in the Waltham (case numbers: 2500/XXXX) office.
: We are interested in finding more information about a commercial laundry owned by George T. Casebolt in Belleville, NJ beginning in 1870. There were approximately 50 Chinese employed there, including some Moy relatives between 1877-1889.
Please contact us regarding your information.
I am not familiar with Casebolt.
