From 1892 to 1924, millions of immigrants sailed past the Statue of Liberty and were processed through Ellis Island on their way to search for opportunity and a better life in the United States.  Part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument and the National Park Service, the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration tells those century-old stories as well as the history of immigration to the United States.  Join a park ranger to learn about the museum, the processing of immigrants over a century ago, and the genealogical resources available, such as ships’ manifests, to learn more about those who immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island.

You will have a chance to ask the park ranger questions – and learn about a connection between the library building and the Statue of Liberty!
