JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen re: missing Ellis Island manifest #general


Morris was frustrated when the Ellis Island on-line manifests was "missing"
If the data exists, there are other ways to get it: (I might add, the
"old fashioned way"...<g>)

1. NARA (national archives in NY and Washington)...they have the microfilm...
some of the other local branches may have them too. You can call and ask.

2. Local libraries & genealogical societies: (i've seen many at the NY public
library at 42nd st, at the NY B&G, and in the main Savannah public library)

3. Certainly the Mormon Family History Library has the microfilm
Begin with their online catalog
Select the film#. On the same web page there is a search for the nearest
library; order the film and view the manifest (if possible, print it in order
to review it later)

Happy Hunting!
