19 Apr Family History Hounds
The Family History Hounds genealogy group will meet Thursday, October 5, 2023 at 1:00pm in the McMillan B Meeting Room for our monthly program. Our topic will be: They Came In Shops: Before Ellis Island. Ellis Island did not open in New York Harbor for more than 115 years after the colonies declared independence from England. During those years, when and where did the government collect data on the new immigrants? Or did they? What do you know about Ellis Island and its precursors? Carolyn Niemantsverdriet will talk with us on where immigrants were processed before Ellis Island.
