In order to illustrate some of the fallacies and potentials encountered when trying to ‘unveil' the heritage of excluded or marginal groups, the article draws on a number of cases from Sweden, Germany, Denmark and other places and discusses how different actors are represented in the narratives of the places they inhabit. Furthermore it discusses how immigrants themselves perceive their position in specific sites. Finally we trace the formation of different migrant belongings in the cases and scrutinize the identity narratives through which they are stablilized.
