Group Description

The Ellis Island Passenger Manifest database, located at http://www.ellisislandrecords.org is a great resource to genealogists. It contains information on over 22 million immigrants that came through Ellis Island between the years 1892 and 1924.

However, there are serious problems in trying to search the database. These problems have to do with the inconsistent spelling of surnames.

That is where this program can help. Simply enter the surname you are researching, and a list of possible alternate spellings will appear. Click on a button, and you can get a custom web page with links to the Ellis Island database for each possible spelling, and a research log to help you keep track of what you have done so far.

Why use this program instead of the search page at the Ellis Island Database website? Speed and for the spelling variations. Searching the Ellis Island site requires you to first go to their search page to enter your surname. Then you press SEARCH to get to information that you really want. This program eliminates the need to use the Ellis Island Database search page, and gets you directly to the immigrant names. So now you can do your research in 1/2 the time.

Version 1.6.5 is now available.
