Webinar: Ellis Island: If Walls Could Talk
Speaker: Tamara Hallo
When: Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at 8:00pm Eastern

Program Description:
Ellis Island is a symbol of hope, promise, and freedom. Over 12 million people stood within the main building’s walls as they were herded, questioned, and processed, knowing that freedom was just a few steps away. Employees worked diligently to process, feed, aid, examine, and nurse immigrants as well keep the whole operation running smoothly. Take a trip back in time and discover what a typical day at Ellis Island was like, what our ancestors would have experienced, and the records created that documented a person’s journey to America.
