Seton Shields Genealogy Grant #198

Seton Shields Genealogy Grant #198

For the final quarter of 2016, I awarded a grant to The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation to assist with the building of the new Statue of Liberty Museum.

I’ve long taken a special interest in Annie Moore, the first immigrant to ever arrive at Ellis Island, and as January 1st of this year marked the 125th anniversary of both Ellis Island and her arrival there, supporting the construction of this new museum seemed a fitting tribute.

If you have Ellis Island ancestors and/or would simply like to join me in supporting this project, there’s information about how you can contribute here.

To apply for a Seton Shields grant, fill out and submit the form here. You can see examples of past grant awards here.
