The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding
passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly
afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in
the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to
evolve and today includes more than 100 web-based
tools divided into eleven separate categories ranging
from genealogical searches to astronomicalcalculations to Israeli phonebook lookups. This
presentation will describe the range of tools
available and give the highlights of each one.
