Ellis Island Passenger Manifests Transcription

Post by vulpackleader » 12 Feb 2019, 23:55

Does anyone know of a resource that has transcribed Ellis Island manifests (including final destination)?

I'm currently in a Master's program in digital mapping. My idea for my thesis project involves using the Ellis Island records to map where immigrants from my great-grandparents' hometown of Augusta, Sicily, emigrated to in the United States. My first step was to use https://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html to search the records for a hometown of Augusta. Next, I need to figure out where these people went! I'm not sure if my project is feasible or not, but it could be an interesting final product.
