today I discover how to get the original doc from ellisisland.org Probably someone already know how to do it but I think this is an important info for all user!!
Moreover the internal forum search engine doesn't work and I can't determine if there is other topiclike this!
- first you must search your ancestor and select his exact file
- now you must see the original microfilm clicking "View origina ship manifest"
- afer right-click on the microfilm image and select "open image in new window" or similar
now you have an URL that end with ".......&S=.1"
S mean size and .1 value tell to the tif2gif application to show 1/10 of the original size....
Chose your favourite size and enjoy your original document!!!
