Liberty Island ... a special place to many of us who have emigrant ancestors.  For many, the first time our ancestors stepped foot in the US was on Ellis Island just after they saw The Statue of Liberty as they entered the harbor.  She is significant to the history of many.

She is also wonderful to visit ...

For my own ancestors, a few came through NY and more came through Boston. What about in your family?

Did your ancestors talk about when they arrived? 
If they arrived in NY, did they mention The Statue of Liberty?
Have you visited The Statue of Liberty?  What did you think?
