Portuguese-American Studies.

Portuguese-American Studies. Williams also provides context for what life was like in the Azores as he highlights the problems faced by Azoreans, which ultimately l Jerry Williams’ In Pursuit of Their Dreams: A History of Azorean Immigration to the United States is a superb resource for those looking to gain insight into the lives of their ancestors. As someone of mixed European descent who was raised far away from the Portuguese community, I found Williams’ work was a window into the lives of my Azorean great-grandparents.

The history of immigration to the United States details the movement of people to the United States starting with the first European settlements from around 1600. Beginning around this time, British and other Europeans settled primarily on the east coast. In 1619, Africans began being imported as slaves. The United States experienced successive waves of immigration, particularly from Europe.

Literary Nonfiction. Portuguese-American Studies. Immigration History. Jerry Williams's history of Azorean immigration to the United States offers us valuable insight into the experience and culture of Portuguese immigrants and their descendents. This account fills a major gap in American immigration history and gives us a comprehensive overview of how Portuguese-Americans--now numbering about a million people--have come to constitute a vibrant and highly visible presence within southeastern New England, the areas around San Francisco and San Diego, Hawaii, and the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area. Even though Azorean immigrants all came from similar cultural and social backgrounds, Williams shows how regionally specific opportunity structures and social hierarchies have contributed to significant differences within the Portuguese-American experience.

I bought four copies of this book to share with family members, because this book gives true accounts of the struggles our good, hard working people had upon entering a new country. This story tells me, my children and grandchildren how difficult it was for our ancestors to find a way of life that helped our family to prosper in their new home, the United States of America. I am one of the 2nd generation Americans in our family. My parents were both born in Tulare County, California where my two sets of grandparents came to settle in 1911. Their home land was Teceria Island, Azores. This book has helped our family learn of our proud, hard working people. Thank you for helping me teach my family of their good fortune.

The first half of this book is a fascinating and well-written history of immigration from the Azores to the US, with much historical information about the underlying reasons for this and the ways in which it was carried out. The second half is more about analyzing census data regarding Azorean population in various places in the US, and will probably be of less interest to the general reader, though still valuable to sociologists.

Great book

If you are of Portuguese descent and live in California your roots are almost certainly in the Azores. Williams' treatment of the history our people is well-written and well-researched. It is a must read for those who seek to add background and perspective to their family history.

Gave me insight as to the Portuguese population in the town I was born in. I learned from this book. I will pass it on to my local Family History Center.
