Identifier: CDP6
Immigration to the central Upper Peninsula from Northern, Central, and Southern Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries had a significant impact on the social, cultural, and political development of the region. Immigrants brought with them their religious ideals and institutions, which significantly influenced the Upper Peninsula's historical development. The Archives seeks to collect primary source material that documents religious institutions and organizations.
