Annie Moore

If you’re into genealogy, no doubt that you’ve heard the story of the uncovering of the real Annie Moore, the first immigrant to arrive through Ellis Island. When the news came out about this last month, I read some info about it, but didn’t bother to read in-depth about it all. Tonite, I have just finished watching the press conference that was given at the NY Genealogical Society and am just absolutely blown away by it all! I watched it online at the new Roots Television, a genealogy focused website that has videos, blogs, and other information. To think that after all of these years her story has been discovered and shared internationally is amazing to me. If you get a chance, you should definitely watch it.
