The Alien Registration Act of 1940, and its purpose and requirements;
The registration process, followed by all non-citizens age 14 and older who lived in or entered the United States between August 1940 and April 1944;
Examining various registration forms, including information collected and how these records can help break through research roadblocks;
Indexing of the forms and ways to identify an early alien registration number (A-Number); and
Where to find alien registration forms today, and how to request them.
