Description

Ellis Island was the nation's first federal immigration station.  Over 500,000 immigrants entered the United States via Ellis Island each year.  In 1907, a record, 1,004,756 immigrants passed through the doors. 

Ellis Island was also known as ''The Island of Tears'' or ''Heartbreak Island'' because of the 2% who were not admitted after the long transatlantic voyage.  Today, over 100 million Americans can trace their ancestry in the United States to a man, woman, or child whose name was passed from a steamship manifest sheet to an inspector's record book in the Registry Room on Ellis Island.
