Can someone recommed a couple of book in which I could find photos of
the passenger ships our families came to the US in..?
I found pictures of the Furnessia and the Saxonia, the ships on which my
grandmother and father arrived at Ellis Island, among photos >from the
Detroit Publishing company that are available at the Library of Congress
website. This is a wonderful collection of photos including views of early
20th century life and cities throughout the country. The Detroit
collection is part of the Library of Congress American Memories Collection
that can be found at:

The entire American Memories Collection is well worth exploration.
