Where Did Our Foreign Born Come From?

We tend to think of our country as being made up of immigrants primarily from Europe. Yes there were the enslaved Africans. However recent arrivals are much more likely to be from Latin America and Asia.
Almost 30% of the foreign born population of our country in 2009 was born in Mexico. No European country broke into the top eleven birth locations. Five of the top seven countries were from Asia. Canada, at number 9, was the only country outside Latin America and Asia to make the top 11.

The times, they are changing! Makes me wonder why I am teaching European Genealogy Research. In another generation the demographics of family history researchers will be very different.
