Castle Garden (Battery) was used as an immigration station
There are no passenger lists for Castle Garden.
Pending the building of the Ellis Island station the old Barge Office
was used as the NYC immigration station.
On January 1892 Ellis Island was ready for use and it was used
as such until June 15, 1897 when the two buildings burned down.
Once again the old Barge Office was used until Dec. 18, 1899 when
rebuilt Ellis Island reopened.
The Ellis Island records list 21 of 57 surname Fugli under :
All the same place, Klenovce (Sv) Klenóc (H) located on the Klenovská
Rimava potok (stream) 130 miles ENE of Bratislava and near Hnús^t^a,
A János (John) Figuli (b. 1865) immigrated in 1892.
A Johanna Figuli (b. 1866 ?) immigrated in 1892.
The LDS may not have filmed the R.C. or Lutheran parish church records
for Klenovce, but nevertheless these records are at the regional
Slovak State Archives.
