Barbara Ann Mojica

Author Barbara Ann Mojicaabout this book: A journey begins with leaving one place and venturing forth toward a new one. Millions of immigrants left their homelands in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to seek the promise of a better future in America. Why did they abandon their homeland? Some fled from political oppression or slavery, others sought work or the possibility of acquiring land to farm. Those who entered the Great Hall on Ellis Island did so with fear in their hearts and hope in their eyes. As they entered the Great Hall carrying all their worldly possessions, they faced medical inspections while they walked up the main staircase. Those who had infirmities were marked with chalk symbols. Each immigrant had to answer twenty-nine questions translated into their own language. The lucky ones who passed inspection happily met family members at the "kissing post." They exchanged whatever money they brought for American money and settled in the cities to find work or to go west to homestead and become farmers. Unfortunate immigrants who failed the inspections were deported or placed in the hospital on the island

Come follow along and explore their dreams and experiences as they passed through the gates on Ellis Island. Perhaps you will see one of your ancestors reflected in their eyes. For most immigrants the end of their transatlantic voyage was a new beginning, for others it become "An Island of Tears."
