Olympia, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2014 -- Barry Nove, author of “The Ellis Island Experience: A Sampling of Stories and How You Can Research Your Own” priced $3.99 is pleased to announce the release of the Kindle edition of his immigrant experience book. The book is also available in a print edition. The work offers links to help people interested in learning about their own ancestors' immigration experience through Ellis Island.
Author Barry Nove spoke about his purpose for the book, “My hope is that middle and high school students, libraries, and all those whose ancestors came through Ellis Island will buy the book to learn about their families' experience and understand their story. I drew the information for the fictionalized part of the book from passenger manifests, naturalization files, and available online resources.”
The tales provide insight into what it was like to arrive at Ellis Island in the early part of the 1900s. The book is particularly applicable to those with Jewish immigrant ancestry, just in time for the Jewish High Holidays beginning late next week.
The second part of the book offers a wealth of genealogical research information. It describes techniques for finding an Ellis Island connection by using web-based Ellis Island databases, including Ancestry.com.
