Yesterday I was reading the local paper and saw an article about ancestry.com. They've recently received a huge amount of immigration records from 1820-1960. They have the actual ship manifests scanned in and everything. They are making them available until the end of the year at no charge.
In just about 5 minutes yesterday, I found the records of when my great-aunt and two of my great-uncles arrived in New York in 1940. Since my father's side of my family had to escape Hungary during WWII,our records are very limited. It was very exciting to find them on the ship manifest. I'm going to keep looking for more relatives. If you're into genealogy, then this tip is for you!
