New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Ellis Island/American Family Immigration History Center
The American Family Immigration History Center at Ellis Island, an archive of more than 50 million Port of New York passenger arrival records and 900 ship pictures circa 1892–1957, allows you to explore your family’s arrival in America. Find, store and purchase documents containing information about your ancestors, which can also be accessed online at www.libertyellisfoundation.org. Near the Family History Center, you'll find the Peopling of America Center exhibits, which tell the stories of pre- and post-Ellis immigration.
