Now What: How Do I Find My Immigrant Ancestor?
9/27/2011
How do I find the arrival record of an ancestor who isn't in the Ellis Island database?

Q. I can’t find my ancestor Emma Berman’s record of arrival in the United States. She’s from a town in Romania beginning with a T. Various census records state her year of immigration as 1908 and 1911 and have her born in the early 1880s. I’ve searched the Ellis Island database for both years without success. What now?
