Westford owes a large part of its character to the immigrants who came here for work in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The federal census records give places of birth and years of immigration over this same time period. WHS volunteer Bob Oliphant has analyzed these records from 1850 to 1920 in detail and will tell us what they reveal about Westford’s early immigrant ancestors from Ireland, Canada, England, Scotland, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Turkey and other places — from where they came, why they came, when they came, where they worked once they got here, and their impact on our town.
