Ellis Island Morgue, New York

Ellis Island was, of course, the major gateway destination for the millions of immigrants who arrived in America between 1892 and 1954. More than 3,000 souls died in the Ellis Island hospital while it was open, with a significant number of the bodies passing through the morgue.

Re: Ellis Island Morgue, New York

Too many of my Italian-America brother and sister traveled thousands of miles across the Atlantic, only to end up at this morgue. My Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother arrived in Ellis island in 1909. He was a young, CPA from Sicily. His dream was to work for an American banking institution. After receiving the proper documentation that allowed him to work in America, he went to a major bank in New York City to acquire about a job they were trying to fill. As he waited for the manager to talk to him about the job, two security guards told him that Italians were not welcome in the bank and they surely do not hire WOPs. They grabbed him up and threw him out into the street. It was not easy to be Italian in those days.
