This is the first of what should be a whole bunch of postings about tracing my family genealogy. I am currently researching my great grandparents, Joseph and Mary Mazon. Born in northwestern Hungary, in what is now Slovakia, they emigrated to America in 1903 and settled in West Alllis, Wisconsin.
Emigrants who arrived between 1892 and 1924 passed through the Ellis Island Immigration Station in New York. You can search the passenger arrival records at the Statue of Liberty - Ellis Island Foundation website. You'll want to create a free user account so you can view the records.
Once you become familiar with the records at the Ellis Island website, you might want to try the One Step search forms at the website of Stephen P. Morse. Dr. Morse has created some ingenious forms that allow fast, efficient searching of the Ellis Island database.Posted by e-biev at January 14, 2005 2:33 PM
