Castle Garden and Ellis Island

Postby rancelli » 23 Jul 2011, 06:28

Something I've noticed about one of my ancestors. The same record for Giuseppa Buccelle can be found at Castle Garden and Ellis Island for Feb 26, 1892. I'm kind of confused....Why would they both have this record?? Are both sites helping each other out with the indexing?

Castle Garden's home page (www.castlegarden.org) says the following:

"CastleGarden.org is an educational project of The Battery Conservancy. This free site offers access to an extraordinary database of information on 11 million immigrants from 1820 through 1892, the year Ellis Island opened. Over 100 million Americans can trace their ancestors to this early immigration period."

It seems you happen to be looking at a recod for the year that they intersected.
