the immigrant

I wonder if there's a file on my ancestors in those undisturbed, ancient cabinets on Ellis Island. And was it noted that the man arrived with a cardboard suitcase.
And that he waited and dreamed for this day.

Stephen Wilkes was allowed access to document that hallowed ground in his magnificent collection, Ellis Island: Ghosts Of Freedom.
