About 6 years ago I visited Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty in New York. It was very rewarding and inspiring visit – knowing that millions of people from 1892 to early 1920s came through this immigration gateway.
I was able to learn and gather documentation that my maternal great-grandmother Marie Ursprung came with two sisters from Frankfurt, Germany to Ellis Island, in late 1901. She later married William Maas of Lake Geneva, in 1903.

Thanks for this, Bob. My wife Sandra & I also visited there about 6 years ago, and we learned much, especially abut the Italian immigration on my wife’s side. Sandra will like to see this post, so I’m forwarding the e-mail message and link I got on to her. John
