First of all I'd like to thank the people at Ancestry.com for creating this important message board for us to discuss our Armenian ancestors. My great-grandparents came to America between 1915-1921. Their legacy, and the legacy of all immigrants have helped weave the very fabric of our country.

A note about Immigration Records at www.ellisislandrecords.org
I discovered as I was searching for immigration records for my great-grandmother HiaganoushYEMENEDJIAN, how important it is to use the alternate spelling search. Many of the ship manifests have names spelled incorrectly, as was pretty common during that time.
Her name was spelled incorrectly as was that of her future mother in-law Gohar TELLALIAN (spelled on the ship manifests as DELLALIAN).
If any one would like to share their search experiences here, I welcome the discussion!
Sincerly,
Sarah Wardlaw Jones
