The Ellis Island Records Online Immigration Database is now up and running! This database was over 8 years in the making and was compiled by volunteers who transcribed the microfilmed records of original ships passenger manifests for over 22 million passengers! It includes immigration records from 1892 through 1924 and links to computerized copies of the manifests.
