Hello! My name is Stephanie Longo and I am a writer/journalist based in Scranton, Pa. I am currently researching a book, tentatively titled "The Kissing Post: Love Stories from Ellis Island" and I am looking for people to share stories of their ancestors. Basically, I am looking for people who arrived at Ellis Island and who were reunited with their husbands/wives/fiance(e)s after years of separation. The story could have taken place in any year and the immigrants could be from any country.
If you are interested in sharing your story, please e-mail me at email@example.com or visit my website, www.stephanielongo.net for more information. I look forward to hearing from you!
Can someone tell me how to find a birth certificate for a relly that was born in the East Indies. I know he was born there as I've found this info on census forms. I need his birth certificate to confirm his parents. Everyone I've asked points me to Kew but I've got no idea what to do!
