      "Morse Adds New Capability to Ellis Island Database Search
      When the Mormon volunteers extracted the Ellis Island Database and found
      they could not read the initial letter of an immigrant's last name, they
      substituted ellipses (...) for the letter. This consigned your ancestor to
      oblivion because the ellisisland.org site does not permit searching with
      non-alphabetic characters. Stephen P. Morse has resolved the problem by
      permitting searches without a last name at his One-Step site,
      http://stevemorse.org."
