Just heard this morning that ALL ship manifests >from Ellis Island will now be
on computer at Ellis Island and all you need to know is the last name!! It
will cost $5.00 but you need to make an appointment, it sounded like.

Eventually, the report said, it will be on the internet.
This is still an ongoing project, with the LDS (Mormons) and the USPark
Service cooperating. Many volunteers transcribing the lists. They cannot
work miracles, however - I am on staff at out local LDS library, and we had
to skip many illegible, faint pages on our selections of films. Many names
were quite difficult to decipher, so our best guesses were made, with 3
individuals deciding.
