Re: Are the C-Files from the USCIS worth getting? #general

I'm curious: has anyone successfully gotten records for ancestors who
immigrated in the 1880s (pre-Ellis)? According to what I see online, the
first US Office of Immigration was founded after that. I'm wondering how
much effort I should invest in trying to obtain records if there would
have been no records!
