Ellis Island is a pilgrimage for many people who want to see the spot where their ancestors took their first steps as they entered the country.

About Ellis Island and the American Family Immigration History Center:
Millions of immigrants entered the United States via Ellis Island. Today, Ellis Island and the American Family Immigration History Center is a place where families can go to learn more about their ancestor’s journeys and start in the United States.

After reaching Ellis Island by ferry, visitors are able to pore through some of the 25 million archives as they search for information about their family. Arrival records show the exact dates that immigrants entered the country. An archive of 900 photographs of ships let some see the exact ship that carried their relatives to their new lives.
