The Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation provide these Ellis Island Records as a free public service to anyone who wishes to look for your family's very first ancestors whose courage took them to this great country.
1) "EllisIsland.org" is not a commercial site; we don't charge membership fees to use our resources, for instance, as big commercial companies do
2) We are a non-profit organization, dependent primarily on charitable, tax-deductible contributions from the public
3) We get no government funding for our work, and never have
A Charitable Contribution to the Foundation is the very best way to help preserve and maintain these two National Monuments
Proceeds from all purchases help the Foundation continue to serve its non-profit mission, which since 1982 has been the restoration, preservation, and enhancement of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
