Between 1892 and 1954, Ellis Island, New York processed over 12 million immigrants. Many of us are descended from the people who landed at Ellis Island. Do we know what they experienced at that processing station? What was their first taste of America like? Did you know that some immigrant experiences at Ellis Island mirror what is happening today? Madeline Yanov will take us on a visit to the processing station and we retrace each step our ancestors took to enter this country. We will also discover the services that Ellis Island offered immigrants and find out why not everyone was admitted to the U.S.
