We were about to dock at Ellis Island. As I touched the large wooden doors of the main building I had a flash of my grandfather grabbing and holding open the same door as he walked into this same building over 100 years ago.

The registration hall on Ellis Island. At the far end of the room you can see three of the podiums the agents stood at and asked the new immigrants questions to see if they would be admitted to the United States.
