Can't find your Ellis Island ancestor's passenger list?

Try the new phonetic matching feature at Steve Morse's Ellis Island gold search form.

I've had trouble in the past finding family members that I absolutely knew had to be listed, but just could not be found because their name was misspelled.

Thanks again to Steve for helping to bring hard-to-find ancestors out into the light!

Much appreciation to Olive Tree Genealogy Blog for sharing this tip about the new search feature.

  1. Sounds like a great feature. I've lost count of the times I've had to search with varying spellings of surnames on various websites.
