"Coming to America: The Ellis Island Experience" With Madeline Yanov - Zoom Webinar (2019 Fall Seminar)
Between 1892 and 1954, Ellis Island, New York, processed over 12 million immigrants. Many of us are descended from the people who landed at Ellis Island. Do you know what they experienced at that processing station? What was their first taste of America like? Madeline Yanov takes us on a visit to the processing station and we retrace each step our ancestors took to enter this country. We will also discover the services that Ellis Island offered immigrants and find out why not everyone was admitted to the country. Webinar details to be announced.
