The Ellis Island Experience


Over 16 million immigrants passed through Ellis Island as a gateway to a new life, and today roughly four in ten Americans can claim descent from ancestors who arrived in the U.S. through that immigration port. This documentary CD-ROM unfolds with original footage, documents, photographs of exhibits at the Ellis Island Immigration, fascinating video segments, and narratives by Ellis Island immigrants. The CD-ROM also gives a good overview of America's 350 year-old history of immigration.
