Ellis Island

Friday, June 22nd, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Ellis Island

Let me tell you, this Web site is an incredible genealogy resource and it is completely free! With the number of immigrants who entered the country through Ellis Island, this is one of the best sites I’ve seen that documents that.

All you have to do to search is type in their last name (first names are optional), their approximate year of birth (there is an option for the exact year as well) and their gender. Next, click Start Search and you’ll be taken to all the results that meet your search query.

But wait, that’s not all there is to do here! Take a look at the teal navigation strip along the top with the following sections:

Ellis Island – Here you will find an amazing section on the island’s history. Learn all about the Immigrant Experience, the Island’s History, see the Timeline, Photo Albums and more. Did you know that just about half of Americans can trace their ancestors back to Ellis Island? That’s pretty incredible!

Genealogy – Here you can learn more about genealogy. From free charts and trees to tips on getting started to even what you should know before hiring a professional genealogist, you’ll find it here. You’ll even find a section devoted to helpful Web links for genealogy.

With over 25 million records and plenty of ways to narrow it down if your search is too broad, this is a gem among genealogy tools. You can even save your search for later use. Check it out today!
