Jacob Levin emigrated from Russian Poland in 1882, and received this fancy decree of US citizenship in 1887. According to the stamps still evident, Jacob used the document as proof of citizenship in order to vote in several elections.Some of Jacob’s papers, along with those of his son-in-law Morris, Morris’s brother Ralph and Morris’s sons Robert and Sidney are available on site or online in our digital archive. They provide a fascinating glimpse of life and absorption of immigrants in Boston.
