A Letter of Thanks

To the Marion County Genealogy Society
August 7, 2018
My name is John. I just wanted to reach out and say thank you. My daughter Addison was adopted as an infant and last year (right before her 13th birthday) she started to become very interested in genealogy. She was determined to trace back her ancestors. Her and I have done a ton of research during this past year which is how we found your page It really gave us the information we needed to be successful on this journey. 

We actually ended up tracing back to ancestors that came through Ellis Island so Addison asked me to share with you this article she found: "New York City and the History of Ellis Island" . She thought it would be a good addition to the immigration resources on your page. We found the article and the links within it very helpful so hopefully you find some use of it too.

We would love to know what you think of it and she would be very excited to see it on your page. 

Have a great day,
John and Addison
