Ellis Island Photos

 blog it
The NY Public Library has digital collections of photos of old New York and much more for people like me, who are climbing their family tree.

About 10 years ago my sister and I went with several cousins to Ellis Island and looked for the names of our ancestors who had come to America through its gates. What a moving visit! And what a great opportunity to tell family stories. Afterward, Cousin Ron guided us to his favorite Chinatown restaurant. It was a day to remember, even as the research continues.
