Ellis Island

Posted by nrohr on March 15, 2009

This is a site I went on that has records on people who came through Ellis Island. I found a record for my great-great grandmother, whose name was Ragnhild Halvorsen (they probably would have been doing her a favor by changing her name), and it tells where she came from and what ship she sailed on, as well as information about that ship. It’s free to search so you can try looking up some of your ancestors if you want.
