New York was absolutely fabulous. Anyone who has had family go via Ellis Island to the USA, I would recommend a visit. The search facilities are excellent, the staff friendly and helpful, and the exhibitions are very informative and poignant. And of course the rest of New York is brilliant also!
I did find a few tidbits to help the research along on a couple of our ongoing trees and learned some new search techniques, so a very worthwhile and enjoyable visit.
