New York City

Sorry this is out of order but here are our great-grandparent's name.
Grandpa and my mom
Tuesday we drove to New York City (and got kinda lost) to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
None of us had seen Lady Liberty before and didn't realize how large she is.
Ellis Island was a fascinating place. Learning about all the millions of people who came through and how Ellis Island functioned was interesting. Many of the buildings have not yet been restored and you get a clear sense of what they looked like during the time the island was in use.

We found our great grandparent's names on the Wall of Remembrance. They arrived from Ukraine and came through Ellis Island around 1911. Having Grandpa along, he could fill us in on more information about it which was was great.
