Hear how these two families, living in different centuries, shared similar struggles, hopes, and survival strategies as they worked to create new lives in America. Visit the recreated homes of the Gumpertz family, whose primary breadwinner disappeared during the Panic of 1873, and the Baldizzi family, who persevered through the Great Depression.
