Ellis Island from the boat

Some time ago, I had the chance to visit Ellis Island. In my years of doing genealogical research, I have often referred to the list of the immigrants who came through this particular point of debarkation near New York City, New York. It seems that none of my ancestors came through this particular port of entry, mainly because they all arrived from Europe before Ellis Island came into existence, but millions of other immigrants came to America through this facility.
