This is a re-print of a study first published in 1870. It covers the immigrant to New York's experience from the sea voyage to their arrival in New York at Castle Gardens and at Ward's Island. If your immigrant arrived in New York before Ellis Island opened, this book will be enlightening regarding the process they went through. There are a few interesting engravings in this book showing Castle Gardens and Ward's Island. The only drawback to the book is that it does read like it was written in 1870.
