Signs of the season
Springtime brings changes at the Statue of Liberty National Monument. Longer daylight hours and warmer weather creates a "dance of diners" on the patio. Trees are budding and every 20 minutes a ferry arrives carrying hundreds of excited passengers dropping by to say "Hello" to this iconic lady in the bay. Make your plans to visit too: www.nps.gov/stli

Today marks the busiest day in Ellis Island’s history—April 17, 1907—when the immigration station processed 11,747 people, more than twice the usual number. In fact, 1907 was a record year for immigration to America, with 80% of those new arrivals coming through Ellis Island. Frank P. Sargent, Commissioner General of Immigration and Naturalization, said, “An army of 1, 285,349 souls, they have come, drawn hither by the free institutions and the marvelous prosperity of our country – the chance here afforded every honest toiler to gain a livelihood by the sweat of his brow or the exercise of his intelligence – surpassing in numbers the record of all preceding years.”

My great grandfather Vlassios Gialamas, from my mother's line, travelled with "Gerty" ship, and arrived at Ellis island on 17th April 1907!!! I'm astonished!!!!
This is such a magnificent photograph. My great grandfather arrived in April 1906, one year earlier. I doubt the scene was any different.
Ellis Island is a "must visit" for all descendants of immigrants.
Those people were willing to learn our language, work and earn their living, and, - live by our laws!!!
It is a fascinating place. So much history.
Irish and Scottish are our family backstory
I’am really intrigued with this place and it’s history! Strange seeing the Scottish names, but fascinating
Why can't we do that now? We can but Trump doesn't want to !
Misty eyes as I see this. Remember my Dad coming in 1917
This week we’re celebrating the 18th year of the American Family Immigration History Center® at the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration!

Staff is available to help all visitors search for their family arrival documents in our vast historical archive of almost 65 million passenger ship records. These records, which span the years 1820 - 1957, are also available online at LibertyEllisFoundation.org. Learn more about the Family History Center here bit.ly/23I5YFE. ...
My daughter was there just a few days ago and was quite impressed. She also got to find and photograph her great-grandparents names on the Wall of Honor.
The info you have on my dad is all wrong
Is there a way to pull all names from a certain village in Greece? Or do you always need a name to search with it?
