Does anyone know about or have a reference to the actual
processing procedure at Castle Garden.

Where did the boats land? How were immigrants conveyed to
Castle Garden? Was there any type of security? Are there
interior photos photographs of Castle Garden during the period
it was the immigration center? Were there medical exams?

There are dozens of books with such information about Ellis
Island, but I don't recall seeing similar references for
Castle Garden.

Your questions, and many more, can be answered very simply by doing a Google
search for "Castly Garden" (with the quotation marks, so that the two words
are understood as a sequence).

If you do not know how to do this, it is really very simple and intuitive --
and is by far the most valuable resource on the Web: The URL of Google is:

My search just now returned 19,600 hits! Not all of these are appropriate,
and some are duplicates. Still, there are plenty of links that are very much
to the point of your questions.

Google is your friend, and can make your use of the Internet much more
