Many of the visitors to this site are Americans of Irish origin / Irish American. You may well be aware that, depending on when your ancestors went to the U.S., they may be recorded at Ellis Island.

From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in New York Harbour.

Here is a link for anyone who may be interested in checking out somebody's journey:
