What did our immigrant ancestors experience?

I have started to expand my family history by questioning what did my immigrant ancestors experienced when they immigrated. How did they suffer? what were their fears? They immigrated not knowing what awaited them. How did they handle this?

We do not know the answers but pondering what the answers could be will give us some insights into what they felt. Ask general questions but try to give specifics as answers. Try it. It blew my mind when I tried to get inside my grandmother’s mind during some of the critical points of her immigration and life.
