Selected Images of Ellis Island and Immigration, ca. 1880-1920
From the Collections of the Library of Congress
These images were selected to meet requests regularly received by the Library
of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. Although the Prints and Photographs
Division has a considerable number of images identified as showing members of
immigrant groups, the images seldom come with detailed information about the
ethnicity or nationality of the people depicted, their names, or details about
The images are presented for educational and research purposes. The Library
of Congress is unaware of any restrictions on the use of the images. However,
patrons who plan to publish or otherwise distribute any of the images should
be aware that determination regarding the appropriate use of an image ultimately
rests with the patron. The Library generally does not own rights to material
in its collections. Therefore, it does not charge permission fees for use of
such material and cannot give or deny permission for use of the images. For
further information, see "Copyright and Other Restrictions

Photographic copies of the images may be ordered through the Library
of Congress Duplication Services.
