Ellis Island photos of your ancestor? Maybe.
We might not ever be lucky enough to travel to New York City to do research in the New York Public Library, but we can still access a good many wonderful things digitally.
If you click to catalog.nypl.org and then select prints & photos and then type in "Ellis Island" you'll be rewarded with 264 photos of that famous immigration station!
Will your ancestor be in one of those photos? Maybe or maybe not. But you will get a better feel for their experience.
And it's FREE!
