Re: Records for Ellis Island deportations #records


The Board of Special Inquiry (BSI) page , image 164 of 165 shows the sisters held for Doctors Certificate on Dec 11, 1907,  with the hold withdrawn on Dec 17, but reinstated, and the deportation order executed on Jan 8 of 1908   The went back aboard the Statendam.  Only a few  BSI hearing records survived.

There is a Holland America Line website
that includes both incoming and outgoing passenger lists.   At the bottom of the page you can find a translate button to enable reading  it in English.
You may be able to find them on the return voyage.

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.
