The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ellis Island by Barry Mareno & Lee Iacocca and Historical DVD.
Ellis Island, at the southern tip of Manhattan, was the major portal for European immigration to the United States, and accordingly it looms large in 19th and early 20th century history. After extensive restoration, today it is a national symbol and an important historic site. Authored by a noted historian and librarian at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, this is the first illustrated encyclopedia devoted to the Island, documenting its various incarnations. It contains more than 430 essay entries on the crucial people, operations, rooms and buildings, events, immigration laws and acts, organizations, and other aspects of the island's history. This ready reference-recently updated and widely expanded with hundreds of archival photographs-is perfect for almost anyone: students, researchers, armchair genealogists, or just browsers.
