This book is very useful in getting the information you need about the immigration records of those who came from over seas from other countries. It is loaded with birth, death, marriage, and dates of leaving and arrival. Karen Kay Ullom

Some Unexpected Insights
on 22 October 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
The Ellis Island website is very user friendly and I did not expect much new information, but first-time visitors to the website will find some good advice in this Family Tree Guide to Ellis Island. The sections on inspection and clearance of steerage (3rd class) passengers turned out to be the highlight of this book. There is a clear description of the passenger experience from the time of their ship's arrival at Ellis Island to when passengers were finally cleared. Turns out that the inspections were a multi-step process, partly designed to make some evaluations when passengers were not even aware of it. Fascinating discussion of how quarantined passengers were treated -- sometimes entire ships were quarantined. I appreciated the bibliography; readers wanting more information will find it here.
