Ellis Island Information Description: Ellis Island is located in the harbor in New York City, and in 1892 became the central port where immigrants landed. With the Statue of Liberty within view, this gave immigrants to this country hope in starting a new life in the United States. Millions of immigrants landed at Ellis Island where they were asked about their past and what they were planning to do in the country. If they were determined to be of sufficient character they moved to a medical inspection area. In this test they were examined and if they were healthy enough, were allowed to enter the country.

There are alot of Baptism/Marriage

interesting. You can search by name or location. I found the baptism
records of both my grandparents in Ardfert/Kerry.
