JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Not all names listed on Ellis Island Data Base #general


Paul Silverstone
 

I have found that with diligence and creative thinking all the people
I have been looking for have been found. Silberstein was found in
the database as Lilberstein and Lieberstein. Some other names have
been grossly misspelled.

This is possible, but when I was in the NARA office in NY, they told
me that the Ellis Island site is only 70% complete for the years that
it covers, and even if your person spelled his/her name as you assume,
and did arrive during those years, and did arrive at Ellis Island, you
may find them at NARA, but not at Ellis Island.
