Records for Ellis Island deportations #records

Mary Henderson

Hi, all!

Are there resources to find information regarding the detention and
deportation of people trying to immigrate through Ellis Island in the
early 1900s?

There is a passenger list for sisters Ettel and Riwke Rand, arriving
in New York, Ellis Island, on Dec. 9, 1907 on the SS Ryndam from
Rotterdam. To the left of their names on the passenger list is
stamped "deported". I'm hoping to find out more about their
deportation. On the second page of the document is a handwritten note
that appears to say "Dr holds" so they may have been ill, but I'd like
to find out any details.
