  Voices from Ellis Island: An Oral History of American Immigration (ProQuest)
Subjects:  Databases  |  History of Medicine

Contains a large number of oral histories of immigrants who underwent examination and processing at the Ellis Island facility in upper New York harbor. The National Park Service in cooperation with the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation conducted lengthy interviews with 185 persons who either immigrated through, or worked at, Ellis Island during the peak of mass migration to the United States. The histories were conducted during 1984-1985. Descriptive information for each interview includes the country of origin, place where the immigrant first settled, and alternate spellings or previous versions of the immigrant's name. Provided by UT Southwestern and the University of Texas System Digital Libraries.
