I'm doing a history report on a fictional immigrant that immigrated from europe to the u.s., can anyone tell me exactly how they traveled to the u.s., I know it was boat but did they have to pay?, did they have someone pay there way and work for that person?,
It varied a lot. From the 1870s there was considerable emigration from Norway, and in most cases the people paid their way themselves. (The boats from Norway left mainly from the port of Stavanger, if you need a real port name.)
But there were others, not least from Central Europe, who had relatives or contacts already in the US who fixed them up with a job in advance - and then of course they had to agree to work for that person for a certain amount of time.
I'd suggest that you choose a specific country (of you haven't already) and then google for the name of the country, plus US immigration /or migration to America. If that yields too many hits of companies wanting to get you involved in the Green Card lottery, you could a time, like 19870s or 19th century.
There is a library. Try to check out reliable sources on the internet rather than opinions. :)
