Walk in the footsteps of millions of people from all around the globe who passed through here looking for a new beginning and a new life for their families in America.
With access to the American Family Immigration History Center's records, you can search all ship manifests that came through Ellis Island. Use this unique experience to research your family history.
Once you're ready to discover Liberty Island, drop off your audio guide and return to the ferry.
