Improvements Made to the Morse Ellis Island Database Search
1. The Ellis Island Database used at the Stephen P. Morse One-Step site is
located on the JewishGen server where it resides with the permission of the Ellis
Island Foundation. The latter group regularly makes corrections to their database. JewishGen
has recently received a fresh file, something that has not been done since 2006.
2. The results page of the Ellis Island Database Gold Form now can be
sorted by any column on the results page. Simply click on the column header at the top of
the page. This feature always existed on the search form itself, but most users did
not know about the feature because it was low down on a very lengthy search form.
