Presentation description

By examining the relationship of Utah's Cretan communities with the Carbon County mines and railroad industries in the early twentieth century, I hope to establish a connection to my own ancestors and community members who immigrated to the area during the time period. In doing so, I will track the emotional, cultural, and communal effect that immigration had on these people to better understand the state's unique relationship to immigration both in the past and present.
