You or your family members may already know where that was, but if not, there are numerous ways to find out. You may also be able to make a good guess, even if you have no concrete information about your first-gen’s initial destination, from the extensive knowledge available about where immigrants from a given country and/or entering a given port ended up.

If All Else Fails

You may not be able to determine the first-gen’s original destination with a great degree of certainty. But the secondary settlement routes of immigrats are quite well known, so the probable destinations can likely be inferred from a family’s country of origin and port of entry. But if all else fails, mention the general part of the country to which the first-gens probably moved.
