I'm writing historical fiction about Chinese immigrants in the 1800s..the story wll end with a chinese immigrant arriving at america, for a better life, and a little on how their new lives were in america.

In the middle, i think i'll have to include what made them want to leave, how they left, how the trip was to america, and all that. I tried to research about why they left and how they left, but i keep on getting info on how life was in america, and i don't need that as much.

can you help me research some more? and if you can't find it, can you reccomend another group of immigrants i can do my story on?
